About the Program

The Inclusive Teaching Track is a sequence of two interactive workshops focused on cultivating equitable and welcoming classrooms where students from all backgrounds can thrive. Participants will practice reflecting on their own educational experiences and perspectives while learning effective strategies to be responsive to the diversity in their classrooms. By the end of the track, participants will have a framework for promoting inclusive classroom dynamics and specific strategies to make classrooms more equitable in future teaching or education-related careers in higher education.

The application window will be open from 12:00 noon Friday, Oct 14 through 11:59 pm Thursday, Oct 20. Participants from previous workshop tracks are given priority. The remaining applications will be selected on a first-come, first-served basis. Applications must be received by the deadline to be considered.

Visit our page on Grad Teaching Development Tracks learn more. All workshops will be held in person.

Workshop 1: Personal and Social Identities in the Classroom

Date: Thursday, Nov 3, 1:00-3:00 pm
Location: On campus
We will define inclusive teaching and use it to evaluate common approaches to teaching in our disciplines. We will learn about specific strategies to be responsive to the diversity in the classroom and to students’ learning experiences. We will practice skills in evaluating a teaching practice to promote more inclusive classroom dynamics and to consider how your own identities impact your perspectives on teaching.
Workshop 2: Principles and Strategies in Inclusive Teaching

Date: Thursday, Nov 10, 1:00-3:00 pm
Location: On campus
We will discuss research that informs key principles of inclusive teaching. We will work together to apply these principles by planning how we will clearly communicate the purpose of learning, build a sense of community, and signal the importance of diverse perspectives. Through the application of these key principles, we will design structured learning activities that create an equitable and welcoming classroom in which all students can learn.
