Equity and Access in the Classroom

Monday, January 27, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST


Monday, January 27, 2020
2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST


In this workshop, participants will build towards a complex understanding of equity terminology and principles. We will start by working through various scenarios around how equity issues arise in our classrooms and collaboratively generate strategies that work to address them. Then, we will ask participants to reflect on their own practices, learn from each other, and build skills for refining interventions through course and tutorial design and facilitation methods. By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify equity issues on campus and in their classrooms (including racism, settler colonialism, ableism/saneism, sexism, heterosexism, transphobia, and other historic, systemic forms of oppression);
  2. Analyze their own teaching practices/strategies in the context of equity issues;
  3. Apply the equity-oriented strategies they have developed to their classrooms.
