Inclusive Teaching

Please note this is a Special Session of the Inclusive Teaching @ Michigan series for Liaisons for Inclusive Teaching, DE&I Planning Leads, and other campus change leaders.

In promoting inclusive teaching practices to your colleagues, you can help to cultivate a positive educational climate in your department or unit. Not everyone you encounter, though, may embrace changing their pedagogical practices. How you manage resistance can be key to the success or failure of your change effort. As a change agent, you will need to be able to anticipate, understand, and respond to a range of different kinds of resistance. This workshop will introduce a series of conceptual frameworks to help you develop these abilities and will provide a structured process for planning productive responses to forms of resistance you are likely to encounter in your own institutional context.

Building on the informal instructor learning community that has developed out of the May Inclusive Teaching @ Michigan series, participants who have registered for two or more workshops in the series are invited to attend this opportunity to reflect and debrief together on what we’ve heard, what we’ve learned, and what we hope to take into our own pedagogical practices and institutional spaces. Facilitated by members of the LSA Undergraduate Education Inclusive Pedagogies Committee.

Lunch provided.

This workshop provides participants the opportunity to apply the inclusive teaching strategies introduced in Planning for Diversity: Strategies for Inclusive Course Design: Part 1. Working with colleagues and Instructional Consultants from CRLT, participants will work through the course design process and receive feedback on their teaching materials. This is a hands-on session so participants are encouraged to bring copies of their course materials (e.g. syllabus, assignments, rubrics, in-class activities) to the workshop. Though it is not required, we recommended that participants attend Planning for Diversity: Strategies for Inclusive Course Design: Part 1 prior to this workshop.

This reflective and interactive workshop will explore the intersectionality of identity and instructor authority.  In this session, GSIs will explore the impact of their social identities (race/ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, ability, nationality, etc.) in the classroom, identify some challenges and benefits instructors may face based on their social identities, and practice strategies for meeting those challenges.  Participants will also engage with the concepts, manifestation, and functions of “authority” in the classroom. This session will take place at IGR, in the Galleria on S. University between Church and Forest.

Research shows that deliberate use of inclusive teaching practices enhances student learning and contributes to a classroom environment in which all students feel valued and supported. How can instructors create a welcoming class climate for a diverse range of students? In this interactive session, participants will learn about various inclusive teaching strategies, reflect on their own and their students’ social identities, and consider ways to mitigate stereotype threat in the classroom environment. The workshop is designed for instructors who are committed to retaining students underrepresented in their fields and those interested in engaging the social diversity of students in their classes.
