Annual Inclusive Classroom Training

Annual Inclusive Classroom Training

CELT has presented the Inclusive Classroom workshops to over 400 individuals since 2015. This Inclusive Classroom framework serves as the foundation for the annual Inclusive Classroom training. CELT will, “… conduct annual training for faculty in each academic department on the importance of, and approaches to, creating an inclusive classroom environment” which supports the “University actions to address racism and discrimination” outlined in these ten actions (PDF), and President Wintersteen’s message from Nov. 8, 2019 (PDF).

In the President’s Message for Inclusive Classroom Training YouTube video below President Wendy Wintersteen, Senior Vice President Provost Jonathan Wickert, and Faculty Senate President Jonathan Sturm share a thank you message to the instructors at Iowa State University for participating in the Inclusive Classroom initiative lead by the Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT).
