This workshop provides an opportunity for instructors to reflect on how they approach inclusivity in the classroom and learn new strategies for a more inclusive environment. The workshop provides practical and easy-to-use advice for identifying areas in our teaching that could make all students feel heard and appreciated. Using case scenarios, small group discussions and best-practices, instructors will develop strategies they can apply to any class, regardless of subject matter. Additionally, participants will receive resources they can apply to their teaching and course material preparation.
Learning Outcomes By the end of the session, participants will be able to:
1. Reflect on how their current classroom practices include and/or exclude some of their students.
2. Identify areas of teaching in which instructors could include more diverse voices and opinions.
3. Identify their assumptions about students that might affect students' ability to engage and/or perform in class
4. Develop strategies they can apply to ensure more inclusivity in the classroom
