Four-Session Training for Diversity and Inclusive Teaching

*This series is currently FULL*

This series now includes four sessions.

Co-sponsored by: Rackham School of Graduate Studies and Intergroup Relations

Co-developed by the Center for Research on Learning and Teaching (CRLT) and the Program on Intergroup Relations (IGR), this four-week seminar allows participants to learn about and practice a range of effective facilitation strategies for use in U-M's classrooms. We focus on pedagogical techniques that productively engage student identity and experience in the learning process, as well as balance different voices and views. We will also discuss strategies for managing student resistance and conflict.

This seminar will survey a broad range of diversity and identity related issues that present themselves in classrooms and other learning environments. The curriculum over the four weeks will explore how social identities and diversity impact student and instructor experiences. Specific topics will include:

  • authority in the classroom

  • strategies for working through potential hot moments and conflict

  • impact of microaggressions in the classroom

Participants will leave this seminar with concrete strategies and action plans to implement change in their teaching contexts.

Participants will also receive a certificate of training after completing all four sessions, which meet Mondays 2:00pm-5:00pm (3/13, 3/20, 3/27, 4/3). By registering below, you will be enrolled in all four sessions.
