Teaching for Inclusive Excellence * √ § Ͼ
Discuss key principles to create a welcoming class climate
Inclusive excellence is a core value of the UMBC community, and we are fortunate to have a student body that is richly diverse in experiences, backgrounds, and thinking. Research shows that faculty from any discipline can take steps to create classrooms that welcome all students and help them feel valued as a part of the UMBC learning community. This workshop will engage participants in discussion around key principles and pedagogical practices for creating a welcoming class climate. Participants will learn how to design inclusive syllabi and assignments that address diversity in race, class, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexuality, ability, and learning preferences. They will also discuss ways to apply the strategies in their own classrooms and/or laboratories. This workshop will be facilitated by Kate Drabinski (Gender, Women's, + Sexuality Studies). Lunch is provided.
