Inclusive teaching involves a deliberate effort by faculty to create a learning environment that attend to and supports the needs of students with a variety of backgrounds, learning interests, and abilities. Inclusive pedagogical strategies shape the dynamics in teaching-learning spaces, affect individual's experiences in those spaces, and influence course and curriculum design. Inclusive teaching attends the range of identities in the classroom and helps all students feel equally valued.
The Inclusive Excellence Teaching Institute is specifically designed to provide Affiliate and Tenure-Track faculty at all ranks with a transformative space to learn and strategize about inclusive excellence in teaching and learning. The Institute will encourage an atmosphere of cultural humility through the examination of social identity and bias. Motivational frameworks, barriers to learning for diverse student learners and proactive strategies will also be introduced. Essential pedagogical approaches that promote an inclusive classroom environment will be modeled and explored. Through pre-assigned readings, access to group Bb site, and facilitated discussions, participants will begin the process of transforming their courses, curriculum, units and colleges.
The Institute will be 9AM— 3PM each Friday with lunch provided by the FTLC. As this is a three-day event, attendance at all three Friday sessions is required. To allow time for pre-reading and preparation, the deadline for registration is Friday April 24, 2020. Register in Sprout.
