It's become increasingly important to recognize the diversity of identities and experiences our students bring into the classroom, as well as to acknowledge our own specific subjective positions as teachers. But how do we create a truly inclusive classroom given this multiplicity of identities and perspectives? How do we create spaces of trust, empathy, equity, and respect that are conducive to active participation and that lay the social-emotional groundwork for deeper learning for all our students?
Research suggests that relatively small actions by instructors can have a positive impact on their classroom climate and the feelings and performance of students. The purpose of this workshop is to provide simple, practical, evidence-based strategies to create inclusive classroom communities. While the session will focus on teaching and learning environments, many insights and strategies can be used to build inclusive work environments as well. Both faculty and staff are encouraged to attend. This workshop is eligible for 1 CPE credit.
