Preparing Faculty to Be Inclusive Teachers (Institute)

Description

In this semester-long institute, participants will have the opportunity to develop their skills for intentionally designing and implementing instructional strategies to support inclusive learning environments for a diverse student body. The concepts, tools, research, insights, and materials gained in this institute will help participants not only respond to the challenges that differences can present, but welcome and leverage those differences for the benefit of all learners. Participants will experience and consider a range of learning activities, ranging from exploring personal identity to unpacking group privilege to practicing specific strategies for managing microaggressions and other difficult moments in class. By the end of the institute, participants will increase their confidence and become a community committed to inclusive practices. 10-month faculty will receive a $250 stipend for completing the institute.
