September 16, 2020
10:10 AM - 11:40 AM
Online Event Zoom
Learn about the key terms, frameworks, and principles of inclusive teaching. Join the CTL for a workshop for graduate students focused on strategies and tools for including all of your students in the learning process. We will ask how instructors can create inclusive classroom environments that set up all students for success, as well as how instructors can help students learn through the diversity of experiences and perspectives they bring to the classroom. Prior to this session, participants are expected to have completed a 20-minute module on Canvas. To get started on the module, self-enroll in the Essentials Canvas site here: ***Registration will close the night before the live session.*** By the end of the session, participants should be able to: - Identify and reflect on teacher and learner identities and their relationship to inclusive teaching - Describe key terms in inclusive teaching scholarship - Develop strategies for creating an inclusive course climate - Apply inclusive teaching principles to their own teaching practice The Essentials of Teaching and Learning workshop series for graduate students is focused on giving you tools as a new or developing instructor to better facilitate student learning and improve your teaching practice. These workshops are best experienced sequentially. This is the first of 4 sessions being held at the same time on the following dates: - Creating an Inclusive Course Climate, 9/16 - Backward Design and Learning Objectives, 9/23 - Active Learning, 9/30 - Assessment and Feedback for Learning, 10/7 For more information and registration links for these additional sessions, see: Attending this workshop and posting reflections satisfies a Foundational Track requirement for participants in the Teaching Development Program (TDP).
