ADVANCE Workshop: Understanding the Challenges Facing Queer and Trans Faculty

Queer-spectrum and trans-spectrum faculty often experience hostile and uninviting institutional climates. These experiences may lead lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) faculty to leave their institutions. This workshop discusses how region, climate, and other factors impact queer/trans spectrum faculty, and how institutions can help develop more supportive environments. 

Facilitator: Jason Garvey, Assistant Professor of Higher Education and Student Affairs, University of Vermont

This interactive workshop will introduce a tool to help you analyze your teaching style. You will have time to redesign a lesson for a class you are teaching now (or one you might teach in the future) so that you can leave the session with some new teaching strategies to put into action!
