Equity in Teaching Institute (EqT)
December 17 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
One event on December 19, 2019 at 9:00 am
The Equity in Teaching Institute (EqT), hosted by the Center for Faculty Excellence, takes place over two days. During that time, participants will reflect on who students are, how courses can equitably meet students’ needs, and what equity in teaching means. Discussions 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 courses so that participants are prepared to meet the learning needs of all students. Along with space for reflection and discussion, participants will be offered practical tips and ways to start implementing a more equitable course design, touching on areas such as: syllabus design; culturally responsive course content; content delivery, explanation and lecturing; active learning; student group formation; assessment and feedback on student work; and creating an inclusive classroom community. Open to faculty, staff and students.
