Mindset to Mastery: The Inclusive Teaching Course

March 19 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 1:00 pm on Tuesday, repeating until April 23, 2024

Across higher education, there is recognition of the growing need for fostering more inclusive classrooms and learning environments. As educators across diverse disciplines, how can we prioritize diversity, equity and justice in our pedagogical approaches? What behaviors will help to translate this commitment into action?

This course employs experiential learning methods to explore foundational frameworks and the social and historical contexts that underpin this critical work. Participants will engage in an introspective journey, examining their own identities, values and experiences to cultivate an inclusive mindset that informs their teaching practices. This course aims to provide perspectives for navigating the complexities of oppression, equity, and justice within academic settings.

Sessions will feature brief didactic introductions to key concepts, complemented by reflective exercises, practical applications and communication activities. The course culminates with a panel discussion led by practitioners in inclusive teaching practices within higher education, followed by a written final reflection and peer discussion.

By the course’s end, participants will possess a clearer understanding of how to communicate their values of diversity, equity and justice, along with practical resources for implementing DEIJ frameworks and teaching strategies within their academic communities.
