Inclusive Teaching Toward Justice (ITTJ) – Program Overview
Co-sponsored by CETL and the Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), this three-part workshop series is a professional development opportunity aimed at preparing instructors to effectively teach UWM’s diverse student body. Instructors will learn principles and practices of inclusive course design, classroom facilitation, and assessment of student learning.
Registration is open to all UWM instructors — faculty, staff, graduate teaching assistants, adjuncts — in all disciplines.
Each session is offered in both an in-person and a virtual format. Participants who attend all three sessions (in either format) and complete the post-session reflections can earn a digital badge of completion.

ITTJ Session 1: Teaching and Learning through the Lens of Social Identities
This session offers a brief introduction to inclusive teaching goals and underlying values, emphasizing how this teaching approach benefits all students and especially those from groups historically underrepresented in higher education. Likely topics include:
- The relevance of identity to teaching and learning
- Ways to value and integrate students’ identities in a course
- Experiences and needs of particular student populations at UWM
Location/format: In person, in Engelmann B73
This in-person lunch meeting will occur in CETL’s Innovation Teaching Lab, in the basement of Engelmann Hall. Some food will be provided; more details will be available closer to the workshop date.
If you prefer to attend ITTJ Session 1 virtually, that session will occur the same week on Wednesday and has its own registration. Please return to our workshop calendar to locate the registration page for that session.
