Teaching for Inclusion & Equity (TIE) Series: Principles and Practices of Inclusive Pedagogy

In any discipline or field, a key goal (and challenge) is supporting the learning of all students despite their many differences.  Inclusive Teaching refers to the ways in which pedagogy, curricula, and assessment are designed and delivered to engage students in learning that is meaningful, relevant, and accessible to all.  It means creating a learning environment where students, irrespective of their backgrounds, can maximize their own learning and the learning of others.  This workshop will provide a space to discuss and explore principles and practices connected to inclusive teaching and learning, share strategies for applying these ideas to the classroom or other educational spaces, and think about who our students are, who we are, and how that informs what and how we teach.  We will focus on pedagogical approaches that productively engage student identity and experience in the learning process and incorporate active learning techniques.  

Please RSVP to the Principles and Practices of Inclusive Pedagogy Workshop.

Please contact Dean Susan Cheng at Susan.Cheng@georgetown.edu if you have any questions.

Teaching for Inclusion & Equity Series: Facilitating Difficult Discussions

Difficult discussions may be daunting, but they can also be crucially productive moments in a semester - and sweeping such moments aside when they flare up can lead to problems, including students feeling unheard, alienated, and hurt - but you do have to make sure these moments are productive. 

Faculty will learn strategies for handling difficult conversations, including how to lay the foundation for productive discussions, naming topics, and providing students with guidance on how to handle them, including possible ground rules for discussion (e.g. focus on ideas, not people; connect comments to course material; etc.).  Faculty in attendance will also learn how to deal with the discussions as they happen - whether you plan them or whether they come up unexpectedly.  

Please RSVP to the Facilitating Difficult Discussions Workshop.

Please contact Dean Susan Cheng at Susan.Cheng@georgetown.edu if you have any questions.

Please RSVP to the Navigating Gender, Sexuality in Classroom Discussions Workshop.
