This workshop will offer a simple framework for introductions and provide a low stakes opportunity to practice with peers.

Inviting Student Identities and Experiences into the Classroom

-

Online with OPD!

A core principle of an inclusive classroom is acknowledging that your students are whole people with rich identities and experiences. The goal then is to actually bring their diverse identities and experiences into the classroom to foster learning. The connections that students make between your class and important aspects of their lives actually help them learn course content better. Join UMass grad student Fatih Cetin to reflect on strategies to include not only personal experiences but also identities and special needs in the learning experience. Part of the Teaching Academy!
