Overview

Module 2: Teaching Students Who Aren’t You: How to Be an Inclusive Instructor (2 parts)
Recommended but not required: Prior module
Privilege is invisible to those who benefit from it. In this 2-part module, we will explore the evidence around barriers to access, success and retention for students who come from historically excluded groups in science, and how traditional teaching practices perpetuate inequalities. We will also discuss the teaching philosophy as well as the classroom management and curriculum design practices which can be used to create an inclusive environment, where all students have a chance to succeed.

Participants who complete this module will be able to:

  • Describe the evidence surrounding barriers to access, success and retention for historically excluded groups in education
  • Describe inclusive teaching methods around curriculum design, classroom management
  • Describe how different philosophies about teaching can affect the ability to become more inclusive as an instructor
  • Develop a plan to mitigate inequities as an instructor

Speakers
