TimeJune 1, 2016 at 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

As we welcome more underrepresented students into our classrooms and campus including; students of color, international students, students with disabilities, and first generation students, we face a variety of opportunities and challenges. This one day workshop on June 1 will address two of those specifically.

First, how can we meet the needs of our students pedagogically? Based on the excellent book: Ensuring International Student Success in Higher Education, Thia Cooper will discuss strategies to ensure a variety of students engage in and improve their learning. Second, how can we understand and work to eliminate our implicit bias? Marie Walker will guide us through the first steps of this process. Participants will receive three books; Blindspot: which explores implicit bias, Intersectionality in Action: A Guide for Faculty and Campus Leaders for Creating Inclusive Classrooms and Institutions: which explores intersecting oppressions and how to eliminate them, and Ensuring International Student Success: which has excellent practical advice relevant to faculty teaching a wide variety of students, including how to scaffold lectures, create successful rubrics and revitalize classroom discussion.
