Faculty workshop focuses on an inclusive classroom

CELT is offering a 3-hour faculty workshop on classroom environments that are inclusive and support all students. It will be offered two more times this fall semester (Nov. 9 and Dec. 1) and five times during spring semester (Jan.5, Jan. 27, Feb. 22, Mar. 28, and Apr. 20). Faculty participants complete online learning modules in the week prior to the face-to-face workshop. Register online via Learn@ISU.

Inclusive Classroom Faculty Development Workshop

Today’s university classrooms are more diverse than in the past. With this diversity of students comes the need to ensure the learning environments associated with courses are inclusive and designed to support all students. This faculty workshop includes pre-workshop online learning modules and an interactive face-to-face workshop focused on creating an inclusive classroom environment. Pre-workshop learning modules will be available at least one week prior to the workshop and should be completed prior to the start of the face-to-face program. By participating in this workshop faculty will:

  • Learn about teaching inclusively and why it is important at Iowa State University
  • Identify their own attitudes towards inclusion, acknowledge how it impacts teaching, and develop strategies to be more inclusive
  • Enhance self-awareness and instructional skills that may contribute to our inclusive campus environment
  • Become familiar with student support resources at Iowa State University
