Meets the Second and Fourth Thursdays of the month, 12:00-1:00pm, Zoom
Creating an equitable and inclusive learning environment where all of our students can learn and experience a sense of belonging is a core value. Yet our society, including our space of higher education, continues to be unjust. The identities that we and our students hold interact with historical and contemporary systems that result in different experiences that advantage some and disadvantage others. To counteract this inequity and be a reflective, culturally responsive, inclusive instructor, we must engage in a lifelong process of discovery and continuous learning. In this faculty learning community, we will support each other as we engage in this work and continue to adapt our teaching practices to the changing needs of the students we work with.
In Spring 2023, we will build upon the foundations of inclusive teaching we studied in the previous semester to focus on supporting each other as we work on specific, discipline-specific challenges. Although we will draw on what we learned in the previous semester, we invite and welcome new members to join us!
