"Building an Inclusive Classroom: Easy and discipline-neutral diversity teaching techniques", Dr. Anna Pope
From Stephen Werninger on September 18th, 2018
Various sources consistently tell us that paying attention to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in the classroom is essential to providing a quality education. Sometimes your class really lends itself to discussions of human diversity, but sometimes it seems impossible to flawlessly integrate discussions of diversity in to your class material. Our presenter, Dr. Anna Pope, will present and demonstrate some easy inclusive activities and practices that you can implement as soon as next week without changing your curriculum. Anna will share her experiences with each of these techniques and offer help and advice in implementing them in the classroom. Additionally, any classroom intervention should be tested, thus we will discuss not only how effective we feel the techniques are but also how you can get involved in Anna’s ongoing work to collect data on each of these activities.
