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.”

All scheduled Annual Inclusive Classroom Trainings (AY21-22) 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 August 2, 2021. If you do not have the list available today, please email it to 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 31, 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.
