Event Description 

Amidst the continuing global crisis of the pandemic, how do we foster learning environments that support the diverse backgrounds, prior experiences, and preferences of our students? The material and psychological impacts of the pandemic and the attendant shift to online learning have made equitable teaching simultaneously more urgent and more challenging. In this four-part series, we will discuss principles and strategies for creating more inclusive classrooms, covering topics such as accessible course design, creating supportive learning environments, and using feedback to gauge and address students’ changing circumstances over the course of an unusual semester. In addition to exploring the theory behind these pedagogical techniques, participants will also have the opportunity to develop and reflect upon their own approach.
