Reflection and Inclusive Teaching, Why You Matter

Friday, February 19, 2021 - 11:00am to 12:15pm
Online in Zoom

Inclusive teaching methods and technologies are within easy reach as we try to make sure all students have equitable educational experiences in our classrooms; faculty are trying to “get it right”. In our push to implement teaching styles, tools, and inclusive language, it is easy to forget that teaching begins with you and all that you bring to your students and colleagues. In this session, we will explore reflective practices and how they contribute to an inclusive environment. Registration Link
