Thursday, February 22 - Advancing Inclusive Learning Communities: Nudges, Tools and Resources for Capacity Building
Featuring Liza Cariaga-Lo, Senior Advisor to the Provost for Academic Development, Diversity and Inclusion; and faculty member, Department of Education, Brown University
Working in a diverse academic community, faculty and instructors require critical knowledge, skills and relevant tools and resources to be able to effectively engage with students from diverse backgrounds across the many intersectional identities that students—and teachers—bring to our learning, working and living environments. This session explored multi-dimensional considerations of effective approaches inside the classroom and beyond.
TeachTalks: The Office of the Provost and NYU IT are producing a series of pedagogy videos, or "TeachTalks," for global instructors. Each TeachTalk features an NYU instructor discussing topics such as active learning, teaching with technology, and incorporating local resources into courses. As they become available, videos will be posted below and on NYU's Opportunities for Global Site-Based Faculty page.
Accommodation is a triptych about the ways in which people with a spectrum of abilities can succeed in the university community. Each film is a personal story that focuses on ability, accomplishment, and hard-earned achievement, furthering understanding of universal design and modeling inclusion, accessibility, and peer-to-peer interaction.
