The Institute for Diversity, Equity, and Advocacy (IDEA), a unit of the Office for Equity and Diversity, and the Center for Educational Innovation invite full-time faculty/instructors to participate in this two-part workshop with the goal of revising their courses to integrate inclusive teaching principles. Facilitated by Dr. Anita Gonzalez, Center for Educational Innovation, and Prof. Sean Garrick, College of Science and Engineering and IDEA Faculty Development Fellow, this workshop introduces participants to an inclusive teaching framework that addresses classroom climate, teaching/learning methods, and course content. This foundational workshop promotes course design and class sessions that address a diversity of student needs.

Part 1 provides faculty/instructors with an inclusive teaching framework.
Part 2 partners faculty/instructors with a team leader and colleagues from similar fields to provide feedback and generate ideas for targeted changes in a course.

After Part 2, participants will revise their syllabus or syllabus section. Participants will apply workshop ideas for redesigning assignments, learning activities, and course content.

Faculty/instructors who complete both parts of the workshop and turn in a revised syllabus will receive a $250 stipend for future professional development. Funds will be transferred to the participant's Professional Development EFS account.
