The Equity and Inclusion Fellows Program is a semester-long program designed to bring faculty from across the University together to reflect upon ways to bring equity, inclusion, and anti-racist practices to their teaching.
May 5, 2020. (Alonso Nichols/Tufts University)
Participants will engage with the questions below through interactive workshops, discussions, and activities.
How do various forms of oppression impact student learning and therefore equity?
How do my own identities, ideas values and assumptions impact my teaching and all of the interactions with and between students?
How can I center historically silenced and excluded forms of knowledge in my discipline?
How can I normalize conversations about forms of oppression and systemic and global inequities that empower and promote students to be agents of change?
What approaches to assessment not only enhance student learning but also foster equity?
By the end of the institute, participants will have begun to develop a reflective approach to the classroom that considers how social identities influence teaching and learning, cultivate the tools to design a course based in equitable, inclusive, and antiracist teaching practices, and make substantial progress on revising a course syllabus.
Participants will be expected to do some reading and participate in asynchronous activities throughout the program. The 2021 Equity and Inclusion Fellows Program will meet for ten virtual sessions from 10:00 – 11:30am on the following Thursdays throughout the spring semester.
