Equity-Minded Teaching Institute
Our Equity-Minded Teaching Institute will be held on Thursday, April 2nd – Friday, April 3rd at the LAX Crowne Plaza. The event will focus on embedding equity in teaching practices and creating inclusive classroom cultures for students from minoritized racial/ethnic groups.
We will help instructors enact their agency and skill to make a difference in the educational experiences of students for whom higher education has been the least successful in serving. This means designing and adopting pedagogy, curriculum, language, roles, routines, and symbols that foster equity as the norm.
Institute participants will have the opportunity to attend sessions on seeing the classroom as a racialized space, using disaggregated course outcome data to understand the state of racial inequity in their classroom, the syllabus as a tool for racial equity, and more.
