Equity in Teaching Institute
February 4 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm
One event on Friday, February 4, 2022 at 9:00 am
The Equity in Teaching Institute (EqTI) takes place virtually or in person over two days. We are now accepting applications for the next EqTI, to be held on Wednesday, February 2 & Friday, February 4, 2022, from 9-4:30 each day.
We have not yet determined whether this will be in-person or virtual, and invite applicants to indicate their preference. During the two days of our institute, we will reflect on who our students are, how our courses can equitably meet our students’ needs, and what equity in teaching means to us. We will center the needs of students marginalized because of their race, sexual and gender identities, disability, religion, language, and/or immigration status and re-envision our courses so that we are prepared to meet the learning needs of all our students.
Along with time for individual work and discussion in small groups, we will offer practical tips for implementing more equitable course design, including topics such as:
- Syllabus design
- Culturally responsive course content
- Content delivery, explanation, and lecturing
- Active learning
- Student group formation
- Assessment and feedback on student work
- Creating an inclusive classroom community
