Inclusive Teaching @ Michigan Series


CRLT understands that the pandemic has made managing the demands of both family care and work responsibilities especially challenging. For many of us that means needing to step away from a Zoom meeting or having children appear on camera when they need to talk to us during a meeting. We understand that this is a part of work-life during the pandemic, and we want to reassure you that we understand and that this should not be a barrier to your participation in our events.

These events are for University of Michigan affiliates only. Any U-M instructor is welcome to register, however, some sessions may be geared more towards specific audiences. Please see the session descriptions for more details. If you have questions about registration please email the series event coordinator, Hannah Burke ( for assistance.
