Educators are responsible for creating classes in which all students feel welcome and capable of succeeding. How can identities salient to our students (race/ethnicity, class, ability, gender, sexuality, nationality, and other backgrounds) not only be valued in the classroom, but leveraged as strengths for learning? In this workshop, participants will engage in discussion on inclusive teaching; uncover a variety of approaches to help students learn and thrive to the best of their abilities; and identify skills and practices to implement in their classes to make them more inclusive and equitable.
Open to Penn graduate students.
This event grows out of concerns in the History of Art department and so may be most useful to students in related fields.
