PLAN Workshop- Looking Forward: Integrating Multiculturalism into a Teaching Philosophy (Brown-Bag Series)
Description. The School of Interdisciplinary and Graduate Studies (SIGS) would like to invite graduate students either interested in or currently teaching to participate in a series of six discussion-based sessions on how to navigate their own and their students’ diversity identities in academic settings (classrooms, mentoring, etc). Students who participate in 5/6 sessions will receive a certificate from SIGS acknowledging their commitment to self-exploration and understanding of diversity in academia.
Learning Outcomes. As a result of this session, participants will be able to:
1. Discuss and write your diversity worldview as a component of your teaching philosophy
2. Process what your next steps are as an equitable, muiltculturally-oriented instructor
