Creating an Inclusive Syllabus: Laying the Groundwork for Student-Centered Teaching”

Syllabi serve several important purposes, the most basic of which is to communicate course content, goals, and expectations to students, colleagues, and accreditors. Syllabi also serve as a guide for faculty on how to plan, implement, evaluate, and improve instruction. A well-crafted syllabus that prioritizes equity and inclusion in its tone, content, and assessment of student learning can lay the groundwork for a dynamic and engaged classroom environment.

This interactive workshop will begin with an overview of main components of inclusive syllabi (including a discussion of course goals and outcomes) and will move to a consideration of how to incorporate practices that support diverse learning needs and an equitable classroom.

Thursday, February 18, 12–1:30 pm
