Building an Inclusive and Student-Centered Syllabus

Event Location: 
502 King Science and Engineering Library
Event Date: 
Monday, November 26, 2018 - 4:00pm

Event concludes at 5:15.

Creating a climate of belonging begins on the first day of class and starts with the implicit and explicit messages you send through your syllabus. This workshop will explore how the syllabus is a rhetorical tool for inclusion, focusing specifically on small, but significant, changes instructors can make to create a more inclusive syllabus. Participants will reflect on changes they can make to their own syllabi (or an example syllabi) to set an inclusive tone on the first day.

This workshop is part of the Grad+ Pedagogy Track for graduate students. The theme for the 2018-19 academic year is inclusive teaching.
