Open to all Faculty
Presenter/Facilitator: Dr. Susan Shaw (BIO)
In our diverse society, providing faculty with the tools and guidance to be able to integrate inclusive excellence, equity and pluralism into the curriculum is essential. Through a weeklong seminar, the faculty cohort will engage in cooperative learning and discussions designed to assist them in developing material on diversity and inclusion that can be integrated into their course content and teaching style.
Ultimately, the goal is to include aspects of our diverse student population into the curriculum as this helps create an educational environment that empowers and validates students. Diversity infused curriculum also results in greater critical thinking and cognitive development, resulting in students who are more competitive in a global and diverse workplace. By the end of the seminar faculty participants will have begun modifying syllabi for at least one course, and will have developed a blueprint outlining how they will infuse their course(s) with these concepts.
Seminar participants who attend all five sessions and modify their teaching will receive a $600 stipend.
