Event concludes at 12:00.

CELT has partnered with the Department of Biology in the College of Arts & Sciences to host Dr. Kimberly Tanner, Professor of Biology Education and Director of the Science Education Partnership and Assessment Laboratory (SEPAL) at the University of California-San Francisco. Join us and Dr. Tanner for a workshop on creating an engaging and inclusive learning environment for all students.

Teaching diverse populations of students requires instructors to construct learning environments that are inclusive and equitable. Research in psychology and other disciplines suggests that how students personally experience learning environments strongly influences engagement, motivation, sense of belonging, and conceptual learning. In this interactive workshop, participants will share a common experience as the basis for discussing how students may experience classroom environments differently from one another. Individual participants will then have the opportunity to self-assess their current awareness 21 common equitable teaching strategies and identify those that could be immediately implemented in their classrooms.
