Each semester, OGI hosts the Inclusive Teaching Seminar, a cohort-based program that introduces faculty to key ideas in the field of inclusive teaching. Faculty will explore research on inclusive teaching strategies and learn how to apply it to their own course design and classroom practices. They will engage in conversations on topics such as: learning through diversity, growth mindset, microaggressions and implicit bias, content warnings, stereotype threat, and assessments. Faculty taking this seminar will have an opportunity to develop inclusive classroom policies, structured activities for teaching difficult texts or topics, rubrics to assess assignments, as well as strategies for responding to conflict in the classroom.  

Program Goals:

  • Develop a faculty learning community for reflection and growth 
  • Create an inclusive environment where participants can explore and reflect on their positionalities and biases
  • Build confidence in participants’ ability to develop, share, and discuss their approaches to inclusive teaching
