Reflective Teaching for Integrative Learning
Session Time and Location
How does your academic and personal background affect the ways that you plan and teach your class or interact with students? Evidence shows that those being educated and working in a diverse environment are more likely to be intellectually flexible and creative, make meaningful contributions to their community, be an effective team player, and be successful leaders. Inclusive Teaching means teaching in ways that do not exclude students, accidentally or intentionally, from opportunities to learn. This session will examine the benefits and challenges of diversity and reflect on why some students may be excluded from the learning experience. We will discuss implicit bias and stereotype threat and offer practical strategies for making the classroom more equitable and inclusive.
