Inclusive Classroom Faculty Development Workshops (Summer 2017)

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. To learn more about inclusive classrooms visit CELT’s Creating an Inclusive Classroom website.

Overall Workshop Objectives

After participating in the pre-workshop learning modules and the face-to-face program, faculty and staff will:

  1. Identify discipline-based and course specific improvements to foster inclusive excellence in the classroom.
  2. Develop an individual action plan for promoting inclusion in the classroom.
  3. Become familiar with the campus resources and programs that support diversity and inclusion.

Pre-workshop Learning Modules

By engaging in the pre-workshop learning modules, participants will:

  1. Learn about teaching inclusively and why it is important at Iowa State University.
  2. Identify their own attitudes towards inclusion, acknowledge how it impacts teaching, and develop strategies to be more inclusive.
  3. Enhance self-awareness and instructional skills that may contribute to our inclusive campus environment.

Modules will be available at least one week prior to the workshop and will be instrumental to our face-to-face program; therefore, we ask that you complete the modules prior to the event.
