A diversity image with information about the event

Inclusive teaching is both a science and an art. At this panel event, a pioneering group of faculty colleagues from across the campus will join the moderator Taj Smith (RIT Executive Director for Culture and Diversity Education) and our audience for a dynamic conversation centered around situations, choices, and strategies related to inclusive teaching. The panel discussion will cover topics including why should faculty focus on inclusive teaching, what are the best ways to design and/or update your syllabus, how to design your assignments, and how to deal with interactions in the classroom and during office hours so that students feel welcome. The audience will have the opportunity to interact with panelists during the Q&A.

Panelists: Nickesia Gordon (CLA), Matthew Houdek (UWP), Lea Michel (COS),  Mari Jaye Blanchard (CAD), Linda Bryant (NTID)

To receive a complimentary copy of the book we’ll be discussing, “Inclusive Teaching: Strategies for Promoting Equity in the College Classroom” (by Kelly Hogan and Viji Sathy), please REGISTER for this event. Books are expected to arrive around March 25. 

This event is co-sponsored by the Teagle Foundation and the College of Liberal Arts DEIA Fellow.
