In this semester-long program (formerly known as The Inclusive Learning Institute), participants will explore questions of equity and inclusion in their classrooms. Participants will engage in the questions below through interactive workshops, discussions, and engaging activities.
Who are the students in my class? How do I create a learning environment that supports historically marginalized students?
What are the identities, ideas and values that I hold, and how do they impact the ways students interact with me and with others in the classroom?
How can I design a course that centers forms of knowledge and experience that have been historically silenced and excluded in our fields and disciplines?
How can I normalize conversations about forms of oppression and systemic and global inequities that are empowering and promotes students to be agents of change?
How can I develop assessments that lead to enhanced student learning as well as foster equity?
By the end of the institute, participants will have the tools to design a course that centers equity and inclusion, and have made substantial progress toward revising or creating a syllabus that reflects equity and inclusion.
Participants will meet weekly. Dates to be determined.
