This session provides faculty who are currently teaching a GenEd course with a DU/DG designation with a midterm check-in opportunity to share and discuss challenges and successes related to engaging their students with the new GenEd Diversity Learning Outcomes. Join TEFD Director of Programming for Diversity, Inclusion, & Equity Kirsten Helmer and members of the General Education Council for this interactive cross-disciplinary session.

At this session we will:

  • Examine and discuss challenges and successes of engaging students with the new GenEd Diversity Learning Outcomes.
  • Identify and discuss teaching practices, learning experiences, and assessments that align with the new GenEd Diversity Learning Outcomes.
  • Generate ideas for designing or modifying learning experiences and assessments so that they align with the new GenEd Diversity Learning Outcomes.

Who should attend? All instructors who are currently teaching a General Education course with a DU/DG designation.

Feel free to email General Education Council (gened@acad.umass.edu) with questions related to the revised GenEd diversity requirements. You can also access information about the revised GenEd diversity requirements through the General Education website: https://www.umass.edu/gened/
