OND:10 - APRIL APPRECIATIVE OBSERVATIONS

What is it?

Appreciative observing is about faculty visiting each other’s classes to glean teaching techniques and learn from the wealth of experience we have at SRJC. It aims to disconnect classroom observation from evaluation. Instructors can get up to 6 hours of flex credit for any time spent observing a class, student appointment, online class, or discussing an observation with a colleague.  Meeting to discuss an observation is completely optional, but many people have found it interesting and worthwhile to debrief and discuss the class.

Once you have completed the observation, confirm your flex credit by selecting “Menu of Activities,” and “OND10: Appreciative Observations” for the amount of time you spent observing and/or discussing an observation.

117:A Art History Lecture Series: Medieval Architecture in Northern Spain
 
Presenter(s): Dr. Robin Kim
 
In our post 9/11 world where stories of religiously motivated hate crimes set the rhythm for the news, many wonder if Christians and Muslims ever have or ever will peacefully coexist. In this talk, Art History Instructor Dr. Robin Haedong Kim turns to medieval architecture in northern Spain for an art historical perspective. Long believed to have been a Christian stronghold with absolutely no evidence of Muslim influences, the region of Navarre is home to architectural sites that challenge its standard histories. A small church in a remote town, the Santo Sepulcro in Torres del Río, stands as testament to a forgotten past when the cultural identifications of Christians and Muslims were mutable, multi-layered, and complicated.
