Teaching inclusively workshop for grad students and post-docs
November 13, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
As student demographics and backgrounds become more diverse, how do you make your content, activities, language you use, and classroom logistics inclusive for all students? As students interact with each other more often with active learning, how do you respond to “hot moments” or “difficult discussions” in the classroom? Incidents of race and racism, privilege and power regularly impact undergraduates on our campuses. Without training, knowing how to address these inequities effectively can be uncomfortable and challenging.
Join fellow graduate students and postdoctoral scholars for this workshop to build your confidence in using inclusive teaching strategies.
- explore the perspectives of underrepresented and minoritized students on our campuses,
- analyze their own and student identity and the impact that identity has on the learning environment,
- discuss a framework for addressing hot moments and difficult discussions in the classroom,
- practice what to say during these hot moments or difficult discussions, and
- examine a range of inclusive teaching approaches to use in the classroom and beyond.
This workshop is sponsored by The Collaborative for Advancing Learning and Teaching (The Collaborative).
