Promising Practices for Inclusive Classrooms – Teaching Panel

November 13, 2019 at 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM

Location:2017 Dunton Tower

Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion are core values in teaching and learning, but how can we enact them in our classrooms? How do we negotiate our own respective positions of power, privilege, identity, and lived experience in relation to our students?

This session was inspired by student focus group discussions about what works—and what doesn’t—to make students feel included and respected in the classroom. Join the session and take part in a conversation with faculty identified by students for their inclusive teaching practices: Manjeet Birk (Women’s and Gender Studies), Jennifer Henderson (English, and Indigenous and Canadian Studies), Geraldine King (Indigenous and Canadian Studies), Bill Skidmore (IIS, Human Rights and Social Justice) and Joy Mighty (Office of the Provost and Vice-president (Academic)). The conversation will be co-facilitated by an Equity Advisor from the Equity and Inclusive Communities Office and a faculty member.

This panel, organized and sponsored by the Teaching and Learning Council’s IDEA Team (Inclusion, Diversity and Equity Action Team), is part of Inclusion Week, which is a weeklong series designed to center the principles of equity, diversity, and inclusion and further community connections and cohesion.  The week is organized by the Department of Equity and Inclusive Communities. Light lunch will be provided.

Registrants to this panel may also be interested in the “Joint Chair in Women’s Studies Communities of Practice” sessions on Feminist Pedagogy and Solidarity in our Learning Environment, scheduled in conjunction with this teaching panel, also in DT 2017.
