Leading by Example: Creating Inclusive Classrooms Workshop

Tuesday, May 15, 2018
10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Location: Beckman Behavioral Biology B180

Please join Erin-Kate Escobar from the CCD and Jenn Weaver from the CTLO at our workshop: 'Leading by Example: Creating Inclusive Classrooms'. This workshop is designed to introduce you to the key concepts of stereotype threat, unconscious bias and microaggressions, and how they manifest in the classroom. Building on these foundational concepts, we will identify pedagogical practices for creating inclusive classrooms.

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  1. Define, understand, and mitigate the presence of stereotype threat, unconscious bias and microaggressions in the classroom;
  2. Identify positive changes that one can make to their syllabus, student interactions and classroom climate that will demonstrate their appreciation of what every student has to contribute; and
  3. Implement creative solutions to common challenges in creating equitable and inclusive classrooms.

All students, post-docs, staff and faculty are welcome!
