Introduction to Equity-focused Teaching
Session Format: Remote Synchronous (Zoom)
Intended Audience: Faculty, Graduate Students, Postdocs
Session Abstract: How can instructors deliberately cultivate learning environments (F2F and remote) where all students are valued, respected, and supported in their learning? This interactive synchronous session will introduce participants to CRLT’s research-based framework for equity-focused teaching, provide structured opportunities for instructors to reflect on their goals and practices related to equity, consider how to apply key research-based teaching principles to their teaching, and exchange ideas with colleagues to support the deliberate cultivation of equitable learning environments. This session will be especially helpful for instructors who are relatively new to thinking about equity in the teaching and learning space.
