"Talking About Race" National Museum of African American History and Culture Education Resource
Faculty are an influential part of students' learning and development. They, too, have an important role in communicating history and culture. What and how the history of race in America is presented is an opportunity to engage in thoughtful, respectful, and productive conversations. Talking about race, although hard, is necessary. This resource provides easy to incorporate, evidence-based tools to inspire and guide conversation.
MTV's Look Different
In partnership with the Kirwin Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity at Ohio State University, this MTV educational program provides evidence-based tools to teach and learn about implicit bias.
Project READY is a three-year program funded by the Institute of Museum and Library services to create professional development for school librarians and other educators focused on racial equity and culturally sustaining pedagogy. While the modules are tailored for librarians, they are free to access and could easily be used by faculty, administrators, instructional designers and anyone in the education sector looking to create a more inclusive curriculum.
Access the complete curriculum guide and free modules by visiting the Project Ready Getting Started webpage.

Inclusive STEM Teaching Project
The Inclusive STEM Teaching Project is designed to advance the awareness, self-efficacy, and ability of STEM faculty, postdocs, graduate students, and staff to cultivate inclusive learning environments for all their students and to develop themselves as reflective, inclusive practitioners. In addition, these ideas and concepts are valuable to individuals in all aspects of education, such as high school teachers, instructors in the arts, humanities, law, medicine, social sciences, and other fields, as well as administrators and faculty developers.
Our modules cover the following themes designed to help instructors construct classroom environments that support the complexities that contribute to student persistence: social identity and its impact on learning; power, positionality, and privilege; inclusive course design; interruption of oppression and microaggressions; and evidence-based teaching.
