High-Impact Practices Workshop Series

Researchers have identified eight characteristics of high-impact practices (Kuh & O’Donnell, 2013).

This Spring the Center will run workshops on four of them, with a particular focus on how these characteristics may enhance equity and inclusion in your course. The goal of these workshops is for instructors to work toward implementing these elements in their classes.

Taken independently, they are of interest and will each focus on a characteristic of teaching that is inherent to all classes. Added together, instructors will be closer to discerning the depth of the impact their classes make on learning for all students.

Inclusive Teaching Workshop promotional image

Inclusive Teaching Workshop (Feb. 19, 3-4:30 p.m.)

Teaching strategies that emphasize structured active learning can create more equitable classrooms and improve learning for all students. As an introduction to inclusive teaching techniques, Professors Kelly Hogan and Viji Sathy of the University of North Carolina will ask participants to reflect on inequities and diversity in their classrooms through interactive activities in this webinar. After providing a framework for inclusive design and their own research results, Hogan and Sathy will lead participants through active learning exercises and case studies that explore inclusive techniques. Drawing upon their own teaching experiences and educational research, they will model approaches online that can be readily implemented with any discipline or class size to help all students achieve their potential in both online and face to face formats.

When?

Feb. 19, 2021. 3–4:30 p.m.
