Inclusive Teaching for a Diverse Student Population
Wednesday, June 9, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Presenters: Kelly Hogan (Dept. of Biology) and Viji Sathy (Dept. of Psychology and Neuroscience)
Research shows that active learning techniques reduce achievement gaps between different demographic groups. In this workshop, we will discuss important issues instructors must consider when trying to teach in a way that is inclusive for all students.
With the support of the College of Arts and Sciences and the Summer School, UNC’s Summer Institute on College Teaching is running a professional development workshop series this summer for any faculty, postdocs, and graduate students who are interested in learning about the best practices for bringing active learning to their classrooms. Participants in the workshop series will learn how to foster diverse and inclusive classrooms, optimally implement active learning techniques, assess their instruction, and design learning goals and effectively use class time to help students achieve those goals. Attendees of all 8 workshops will earn a certificate as an Education Fellow.
