Teaching in Today’s Political Climate
2018 Fall Forum on Teaching and Learning
This year’s Fall Forum on Teaching and Learning will address the complexity and challenges of teaching in a time of increasing political polarization. Based on feedback from previous attendees, this year’s forum will follow an “Unconference” format, giving participants a central role in shaping the day‘s events and outcomes. As part of this participant-focused approach, attendees will establish discussion topics and engage in roundtable conversations to identify ways of establishing inclusive, accessible learning environments.
Inclusive Teaching and Learning
Inclusive teaching and learning is defined as a range of intentional strategies that “engage students in learning that is meaningful, relevant and accessible to all”. These practices can range from using icebreakers on the first day of class to redesigning your course using an educational framework like Universal Design for Learning.
