Workshop Categories:

  • Student-Centered Learning workshops focus on supporting and humanizing students’ experiences and valuing their strengths and potential in the classroom.
  • Inclusive Pedagogy workshops focus on valuing students’ lived experiences, cultural identities, and voices as foundational, and on helping students create understanding of and challenging the individual, institutional, and societal cultural and political factors that shape our disciplines.
  • Culturally Responsive and Culturally Relevant Teaching workshops focus on understanding and valuing students’ whole and intersecting identities and cultures and developing curriculum that represents these identities and challenges and empowers our students.
  • Being a Reflexive Practitioner workshops focus on instructor self-reflection and valuing and reflecting upon student feedback and student self-reflection, leading to deconstruction and revision of instructional practices and curriculum.
  • Student Empowering Practices workshops focus on creating caring environments focused on student agency and co-construction of knowledge, valuing holistic student growth, and inviting students into the learning process to promote deep learning.

Workshop Levels:

  • Tier 1 workshops offer an entrance into conversations in the workshop categories, providing core instructional practices, theories, and strategies.
  • Tier 2 workshops further the conversations in the categories, providing intermediate instructional support specific to equity, pedagogy, instructional theories, and strategies.
  • Tier 3 workshops offer in-depth conversations in the categories, providing advanced instructional support specific to equity, inclusive pedagogy, racial equity instruction, and disrupting the status quo in higher education. These workshops require prior experience with Tier 1 and 2 workshops on the topics.
