In light of recent campus climate concerns, many departments are reconsidering how best to prepare novice instructors to become sensitive to classroom climate and teach in a manner that is welcoming for all students. How can departments strategically support new GSIs in teaching inclusively? In this session, participants will bring copies of their current GSI training program materials and reflect on the ways they directly and indirectly promote inclusive teaching practices. Participants will exchange ideas, brainstorm new ways of supporting GSIs, and discover best practices for inclusive teaching that are relevant for a variety of disciplinary backgrounds. Lunch will be provided.
