Event Description

Classroom climate plays an important role in student learning, success, and a sense of belonging. Classroom culture and climates can be optimized by reflecting on your teaching practices, bias, and positionality and making intentional changes. In this session, you will learn how teachers’ behavior and beliefs affect student success and learning. You will also develop a concrete plan to make adjustments to your own teaching behaviors. Registration is required.

In this workshop series, Foundations of Equitable and Inclusive Teaching, you will learn to tweak or overhaul your course design by intentionally reflecting on your teaching practice with student diversity in mind. Each aspect of course design, from your assessment methods to selection of instructional materials, to classroom climate, may privilege some students while disadvantaging others or even harming them. Our goal is to minimize the harm to the students and maximize student learning and belongingness.

This workshop falls under the AAC&U High-Impact Educational Practice of Diversity/Global Learning.

If you will need special accommodations, please contact the event organizer.
