  • Recognize how a syllabus can foster an inclusive classroom to support our students.
  • Discuss how to make a syllabus matter to your students throughout the semester.
  • Identify strategies to create a mindful and learner-centered syllabus.

Complete the Training (AY22-23)

To accommodate those faculty who could not attend their departmental or a university-wide training, we are providing this asynchronous version. Follow the units below to complete yours:

Unit ① Read an Overview of the AY22-23 Focus

Unit ② Choose Your Scenario for the Self-Guided Program

To illustrate various practices, CELT developed five student-centered scenarios based on conversations with campus partners in the Division of Student Affairs and feedback from AY22-23. Choose which topic you would like to engage with as a scenario, and download the corresponding handout:

Unit ③ Final Self-Guided Program (Asynchronous)

The following asynchronous tasks will take approximately 60 minutes to complete. This timing resembles attending the face-to-face or synchronous Training (AY22-23).

📺 Step 1. Watch the CELT-Facilitated Training Video (AY22-23)

Watch the Annual Inclusive Classroom Training (AY22-23) video in Studio (22m 31s). Note: You will pause and return to this video after engaging with your chosen student-centered scenario.

📖 Step 2. Engage with Student-Centered Scenarios (AY22-23)

Please watch or read your chosen scenario (below), and reflect on how you would respond. Once finished, return to your paused video before completing your self-reflection.

💡Step 3. Complete the self-reflection

To complete your AY22-23 Training, please respond to the reflection for the AY22-23 Unit 3 • Final self-guided program (in Microsoft Forms). Important: Before submitting your responses, check the box “Send me a receipt of my responses,” to receive access to them and you may print them for your records or to share them with your unit leader as proof of completion.
