Scheduling the Annual Training

Scheduling the Annual Training for AY21-22

Table of Contents

The Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT) works with the unit leaders to schedule Inclusive Classroom AY21-22 Training. The AY21-22 Training focuses on “Our Students: Creating a sense of belonging.”

Upon scheduling the AY21-22 training, CELT will post the logistics on the AY21-22 Training Schedule for Departments page.

For additional information about the Inclusive Classroom training, see the Frequently Asked Questions page.

Department/Unit responsibilities

Each department/unit will:

  • Share at least three scheduling options for days/times to host the training.
  • Choose the facilitated training mode of delivery: online via Zoom synchronous session or face-to-face in a physical location on campus. (Hybrid sessions will not occur. Faculty who cannot attend the departments’ scheduled training will need to identify a different one to participate in from the AY21-22 training schedule for the departments’ page).
  • Reserve a physical location large enough to host their unit if the training mode is face-to-face.
  • Communicate with their faculty about the meeting logistics (e.g., face-to-face location or Zoom meeting link) via an Outlook calendar invitation.
  • Select a departmental facilitator who will assist and create synergy at the local level throughout the inclusive classroom annual training; see the departmental facilitator’s responsibilities and frequently asked questions page. Or, to see who served in this role previously, view the AY20-21 departmental facilitator listing.
  • Upload an Excel file (.xlsx or .csv) with your unit’s participant IASTATE emails in the Qualtrics form. CELT intends to enroll the participants into Inclusive Classroom pre-workshop learning modules beginning after July 15, 2021. If you do not have the list available today, please email it to celt@iastate.edu as soon as you are able. CELT can then enroll your department at least 14-days before your training. You may add additional participants up to the day of the program, although they may not have the time to complete them.
  • Track the participation of faculty and instructional staff attending your unit’s training.
  • Record the Inclusive Classroom progress in departmental annual unit report.

CELT responsibilities

CELT will:

  • Contact the unit within 7-days upon receiving the request to schedule the best day and time to host the training.
  • If the unit selects online training, CELT will create a Zoom link to be shared with faculty.
  • Enroll participants into the Inclusive Classroom pre-workshop learning modules beginning after July 15, 2021. CELT will enroll participants at least 14-days before the unit training.
  • Email course invitation to the faculty with access information and instruction for engaging in the modules.
  • Host pre-and post-workshop meetings for the departmental facilitators to consult with CELT. We will reach out to the facilitators by late July.
  • Develop, maintain, and continually improve CELT’s Inclusive Classroom resources.
  • Facilitate the annual program to each unit (department/program/school).
  • Conduct a post-evaluation to ensure the training met the objectives.
  • Provide continuous inclusive classroom professional opportunities for the campus to engage in to extend their learning.
