As an instructor at the University of Colorado Denver, how can you contribute to a campus climate where all students feel valued and fully supported as members of our academic community? This is the key question behind the upcoming nanocourse on Diversity & Inclusive Teaching at CU Denver. This nanocourse includes two ½ day sessions which focus on helping you to develop concrete strategies for inclusive teaching through classroom practices, course design, and both formal and informal interactions with students. Participants will have opportunities to: (1) apply research-based approaches to designing courses that effectively support the learning of all students; (2) brainstorm assignments and activities that leverage student diversity; (3) practice responding to classroom “hot moments” in ways that advance student learning; and (4) develop strategies for establishing classroom climates in which students feel valued and supported. This nanocourse will be facilitated by Dr. Diane Estrada, Associate Professor in the School of Education and Human Development.
This Nanocourse has been cancelled
