The Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT) finished the 2020-21 Academic Year (AY20-21) of the Inclusive Classroom Annual Training in the fall semester, 2020. The 2021-22 Academic Year (AY21-22) of the Annual Inclusive Classroom Training will occur during the 2021 fall semester.
The annual training is the result of the ten actions (PDF) outlined in President Wintersteen’s message that CELT will “… conduct annual training for faculty in each academic department on the importance of, and approaches to, creating an inclusive classroom environment.”
During the 2021 fall semester, CELT will facilitate the AY21-22 training, which focuses on “Our Students: Creating a sense of belonging.”
CELT finished AY20-21 of training in fall 2020. The objectives included:
- Recognize why teaching inclusively is important.
- Identify course-specific improvements to foster inclusive excellence in the classroom.
