ATW: Teaching First-Generation and Non-Traditional Students

Event Description 

First-generation and non-traditional students bring unique assets, needs, and expectations to our classrooms. In this workshop we will discuss this growing and diverse population of students in order to gain a better understanding of how to meet the needs of a diverse student body as well as what the benefits are of having diverse perspectives and experiences represented in our classrooms. This workshop will feature a panel to share their experiences and help you think through these issues in your own teaching. Please contact the organizers with any questions (ievgeniia.sakal@yale.edu and julianne.gerdes@yale.edu). This ATW fills the inclusivity requirement toward the CCTP.
