Diversity in the College Classroom

Become a better college instructor by considering the complex issues of diversity and how to address them effectively in your classroom practice. Current graduate students and faculty are recognizing that we must consider that the way we teach differentially impacts the success of all our students. This course is designed for graduate students and post-docs who have an interest in advancing diversity issues as educators. Participants in this course will take a critical yet practical look at how we define diversity and for what purposes, and discuss the ways different definitions of diversity might influence what and how we teach our disciplinary topics. Participants will also create a diversity-focused plan of action for their future teaching practice.
