The Teaching Hour: An Informal Lunchtime Forum
Wednesdays, 4/5, 4/26, & 5/17 from 12-1pm
Wieboldt 310D/E

The Teaching Hour is a lunchtime series that aims to bring together instructors across the University to foster a teaching community around the development of best practices in inclusive teaching. As we explore ‘diversity’ from the perspective of class content, our undergraduate students, and our own positionalities as instructors, we hope to generate and share strategies to improve our teaching practice and meet our students’ needs.

The 3-part series will be organized around the following topics:

  • April 5th: Teaching “Difference”

  • April 26th: Teaching as a Person of Color

  • May 17th: Gender in the Classroom

Each of the sessions will focus on questions and concerns participants bring to the forum and will be facilitated by Assistant Director Chandani Patel. This pilot program is designed to assess interest in programming on Inclusive Teaching, so please consider attending even just one session.

RSVP REQUIRED: To RSVP to this event, please login to GRAD Gargoyle by clicking on the “Student/Alumni” user icon. Once on the home page, follow these steps: Click Events>Click Workshops>Search “THE TEACHING HOUR" and RSVP to the session or sessions of your choice.
