During this interactive session we will consider participants’ teaching and learning experiences during the past academic year and their future steps towards inclusive instruction. We will discuss:
- Who are the learners at the University of Maine?
- Which instructional mindsets can help foster more equitable and welcoming classrooms?
- Which teaching practices can have a positive impact in transforming learning environments at the university?
- What can change look like at the department level?
- What commitments can be made to advance inclusivity goals in the coming year?
Following this 60 minute session there will be a 30-minute Q&A to provide an opportunity for informal conversations to occur with the speaker.
This virtual presentation is open to any interested members of the University of Maine System.
