How do we ensure that our students feel a sense of belonging and respect in our classrooms? How do we build a learning community in which students collaborate and solve problems as scientists? How do we embrace and leverage the diverse perspectives, backgrounds and experiences our students bring to our disciplines? In this webinar, Kimberly Tanner, author of the frequently-referenced article “Structure matters: twenty-one teaching strategies to promote student engagement and cultivate classroom equity,” will lead participants through a discussion of concrete strategies to teach inclusively. We encourage participants to bring their ideas and questions on this most timely and important topic on today’s college campuses.
