Tuesday Topics

tuesday topics

College of Nursing and Health Professions hosts "Tuesday Topics," an informal, regularly designated space designed to connect faculty, students and staff, and help grow the interprofessional community within the College. "Tuesday Topics" include sessions promoting CNHP's research initiatives, sharing scholarship on issues relevant to healthcare and providing guidance on best practices in research and education. Most "Tuesday Topics" are open to all faculty, students and staff in CNHP, although some may have a more targeted audience.

"Tuesday Topics" are generally held Tuesdays from 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. on Drexel's Center City campus. Participants can join in person or via live webcast.

As announced by President Fry on Thursday, March 12, 2020, the COVID-19 outbreak, now officially designated a pandemic by the World Health Organization, calls for extraordinary measures to limit the spread of the coronavirus. In light of this, we have modified the events below to ensure our faculty, professional staff and students’ health and safety until we resume regular campus activities. Details on all the precautionary measures enacted thus far can be found on the Drexel coronavirus website. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we deal with this complex and rapidly changing situation.

Strategies and Tools for Successful IPE Integration

Original Date: Tuesday, March 31, 2020 12:00 - 1:00 p.m.
POSTPONED

The concept of Interprofessional Education (IPE) is not new. Evidence supports that collaboration can enhance learning, reduce workload, and inspire innovation. Recently, healthcare regulatory bodies have recognized the importance of IPE by including interprofessional competencies as program outcome measures. Faculty must incorporate IPE into programs that are already content heavy and time sparse. Strategies and resources for IPE integration will be discussed.

Maura A Nitka MSN, RN, CPN

All are welcome! Teaching Faculty and those who aspire to teach are encouraged to attend.

America To Me: Real Talk

Original Date: Tuesday, April 7, 2020 12:00 - 1:00 p.m.
POSTPONED

For academic year 2019- 2020 we will use the acclaimed documentary series America To Me to explore the challenges and personal obstacles confronting our own students as they navigate their academic careers. Real Talk is a series to engage our community of learners around the issues of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion. Please note, attendance at previous America To Me Real Talk sessions is not necessary to engage in these discussions.

Members of the Drexel University community can now access the full America To Me series here.

In this talk, we will view clips from the series and engage in dialogue to explore issues of bias and privilege. How does race play out in the choices that students make and how they are defined? What is the impact of racial predictability of student achievement on academic success? Discipline? Socio-emotional health?

About the series: America to Me

Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Steve James (Hoop Dreams, Life Itself) examines racial, economic and class issues in contemporary American education in the ten-part unscripted documentary series America to Me. Poignant and funny, epic and intimate, America to Me spends an academic year at Chicagoland's elite Oak Park and River Forest High School (OPRF), allowing its students, families, faculty and administration to tell stories of the pressures and challenges teens face today in their own words.

Presenters: TBD

All are welcome! Presented by the Board of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Being Anti-Racist: Workshop 2 - Remaining Characteristics and Antidotes of White Supremacist Culture

Tuesday, May 5, 2020 12:00 - 1:00 p.m.
Three Parkway Building, Room 639 and Via Live Webcast

Workshop 2 of this anti-racism series will focus on cultural racism of white supremacy. It builds on the first workshop in which 5 of the 11 characteristics and antidotes were reviewed. While this session will expand upon the lessons of the previous session, those who are interested are welcome to attend.

Participants can expect to learn about the foundations and characteristics of white supremacist culture and examine the antidotes reflected in inclusive culture. One of the purposes of naming characteristics of white supremacy culture and recognizing its' fundamental role in American culture is to understand how organizations, which use these characteristics as their norms and standards, make it difficult if not impossible, to open the door to other cultural norms and standards. As a result, black and brown-raced individuals are only invited into the white world, which still symbolizes power and privilege, as long as they quietly acclimate and adjust to whiteness and its structures. Being able to name both the behavioral manifestations and cultural structures of white supremacy will help us deconstruct racism to: (a) ameliorate cultural differences that overtly and covertly assign value and normality to white people and whiteness; (b) produce the inequitable practice and social status; (c) and reinforce undignified treatment of People and Communities of Color. This topic is offered in context of the adverse health effects that racism disproportionately causes for Black and Brown people.

Lindsay Edwards, MA, BC-DMT, LPC
