Location: Union South — check TITU for exact room
Facilitators: Devin Wixon

Developed in partnership with the NSF INCLUDES Aspire Alliance.

As students interact with you and each-other, how do you respond to “hot moments” or “difficult discussions” in the classroom? This workshop is designed for graduate students and post-docs looking to build skills for both current and future teaching roles, and all current and future instructors are welcome to join. Aspects of prejudice, privilege and power regularly impact undergraduates on our campuses. Without training, knowing how to address these inequities effectively can be uncomfortable and challenging. This session emphasizes opportunities to “say the words,” offering practice in deconstructing conversations and receiving feedback.

Participants will:

  1. Explore their own and students’ social and cultural identities and the impact that identity has on learning
  2. Apply a framework for addressing hot moments and difficult discussions in the classroom
  3. Practice what to say during these hot moments or difficult discussions
  4. Examine a range of inclusive teaching approaches to use in the classroom and beyond

What did past participants say about this workshop?

  • “I really enjoyed the Delta Inclusive Teaching workshop! It opened my eyes to potential situations for inequities in the classroom and think about ways to address them. I definitely recommend this workshop for anyone who will be in the classroom!”
  • “I didn’t know where to start with learning inclusive teaching practices. The Delta workshop provided a clear, concrete, and engaging pathway into a difficult topic that left me very empowered to incorporate what I learned into my own teaching philosophy. I felt the class seemed to meet me where I was at in my own teaching practice, which is such a rarity in a workshop whose participants had such diverse experiences in teaching.”
