Description

Higher education faces no shortage of issues that require a shared commitment. From support for undocumented, underrepresented, and marginalized students to related issues of access, student health, and increasing costs, we must remain vigilant in our pursuit of social justice. Redesigning the classroom to create a culture of inclusion requires instructors to pair critical self-reflection with human rights principles. This workshop will share strategies for cultivating a pedagogy of inclusion. By participating in this workshop you will:

  • Learn how to transform your teaching practices to better engage, support, and prepare your students in your role as a graduate teaching assistant or future professor 
  • Learn how to drive inclusivity among your classmates in your current role as a graduate student
  • Review fundamental concepts of social justice such as: ensuring access, practicing equity and fairness, and exercising asset-based thinking.
