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

Developed in partnership with the NSF INCLUDES Aspire Alliance.

How do you make your classroom successful for students from diverse backgrounds? This workshop is designed for graduate students and post-docs looking to build skills for both current and future teaching roles, but all current and future educators are welcome to join. As students interact with each other more often with active learning, how do you respond to “hot moments” or “difficult discussions” in the classroom? 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 workshop is designed to build your confidence in using inclusive teaching strategies.

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

This session emphasizes opportunities to “say the words,” deconstructing conversations and receiving feedback.

Developed in partnership with ASPIRE: The National Alliance for Inclusive & Diverse STEM Faculty
