Join Dr. Kelly Hogan and Dr. Viji Sathy for this online, interactive workshop on inclusive teaching. The session will highlight the need for high course structure and model techniques designed to elicit equity in both online and face to face courses.

Teaching strategies that emphasize structured active learning can create more equitable classrooms and improve learning for all students. As an introduction to inclusive teaching techniques, Professors Kelly Hogan and Viji Sathy of the University of North Carolina will ask participants to reflect on inequities and diversity in their classrooms through interactive activities in this webinar. After providing a framework for inclusive design and their own research results, Hogan and Sathy will lead participants through active learning exercises and case studies that explore inclusive techniques. Drawing upon their own teaching experiences and educational research, they will model approaches online that can be readily implemented with any discipline or class size to help all students achieve their potential in both online and face to face formats.

 

Workshop Objectives:

•Explain the inequities that arise in an unstructured learning environment.

•Describe techniques that add structure and equity to a classroom.

•Brainstorm ways to reduce the inequities in your own courses.
