A&S Inclusive Teaching Circles
Inclusive Teaching Circles are small, consistent groups of faculty, lecturers, and graduate teaching assistants who are dedicated to teaching that is inclusive and equitable for all students. At these monthly 90-minute meetings, participants will discuss readings, share ideas, explore new teaching strategies, and provide mutual support for the work of inclusive education. Lunch will be served for in-person sessions.
Are your syllabi inclusive? This ITC will discuss various perspectives on making course syllabi more diverse, equitable, and inclusive. We will examine methods and tools for incorporating into syllabi elements that speak to students’ social, racial, ethnic, sexual, and gender identities, making everyone feel more welcomed, respected, and included in class discussions. The first half of each meeting will be dedicated to reading Sara Ahmed’s On Being Included: Racism and Diversity in Institutional Life (Duke University Press, 2012).
