Reinvent Your Course for Diversity
To prepare students to live and work in our very complex world is a core aspect of Educating Illinois. Success depends upon incorporating diverse content and perspectives into our teaching. It is also important to be mindful of the diverse ways people communicate and learn. This workshop will help you reflect on your course content and explore how that content can meet the needs of the diverse student population at Illinois State University. Incorporate strategies that create a culturally inclusive classroom climate, while facilitating conversations that challenge students’ ethnic and cultural assumptions. Lunch is provided for the full-day meeting on July 11. This cohort will also participate in the Summer Showcase on August 3, 2017, at the Alumni Center. A $500 stipend is available to eligible participants who complete the program. Registration is required by Friday, April 14.
