Enriching Scholarship

CRLT, CRLT in Engineering, and the Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) program are pleased to welcome Dr. Lindsey E. Malcom-Piqueux from the Center for Urban Education (CUE) at the University of Southern California.

In this research presentation, Dr. Malcolm-Piqueux will argue that efforts to close equity gaps in STEM fields have faltered because of their reliance on traditional, deficit-based perspectives of student success. She will offer an alternative approach to understanding and addressing equity gaps through equity-minded practice and present research-based strategies for equity-minded practice in STEM education, both inside and outside of the classroom.

How can the body be a laboratory for examining dialogue, choice-making, roles and habits?  In this critical theory seminar/ interactive workshop, geared toward instructors of all disciplines, choreographer and U-M MFA alum Eryn Rosenthal shares some of her research on the connections between an "art-sport" called Contact Improvisation and the political writings of activists from South Africa, Spain, the US, and elsewhere. What can the body bring to larger discussions of dialogue-building, diversity, inclusion and empowerment in U-M's different learning-teaching environments?

If you plan to attend any of the Inclusive Teaching @ Michigan sessions, please also join us for this final lunch. This event will provide an opportunity to reflect upon key ideas and strategies we've gained through the series -- and to strategize together about effective ways to share those ideas with colleagues across the university, from our various institutional roles and identities. CRLT facilitators will provide some relevant resources to help participants think collaboratively about challenges that can arise in conversations about inclusive teaching and identify promising practices for engaging a broad range of colleagues in crucial discussions about cultivating always-more-inclusive teaching and learning environments at U-M.

This session is part of the Inclusive Teaching @ Michigan series. Please see the full listing of series events here.

This session provides IT@M participants a structured opportunity to share and get feedback on teaching materials (e.g., syllabus elements, assignments, classroom activities) they are developing with inclusive teaching in mind. Working in small groups with U-M colleagues and Instructional Consultants from CRLT, participants will workshop materials in conversations informed by insights, strategies, and frameworks shared throughout the Inclusive Teaching @ Michigan sessions. This is a hands-on collaborative session, so please bring a few copies to share of materials you plan to workshop.

Community-based learning (CBL) has important implications for the development of cross-cultural awareness and positively impacts campus climate as students, faculty and community members collaborate across differences. In this session co-facilitated by experts from LSA's Center for Engaged Academic Learning (CEAL) and the Ginsberg Center, we will discuss ways to promote student learning for a broad range of students through experiences in communities. We will explore key principles and promising practices for developing effective CBL courses. Participants will begin applying these ideas to their own courses, so please bring a course idea or description. This session is designed for faculty, staff or graduate student instructors who are planning to teach a CBL course.

This session is part of the Inclusive Teaching @ Michigan series. Please see the full listing of series events here.
