Inclusive Teaching Toward Justice (ITTJ) – Program Overview

This three-part workshop series is a professional development opportunity aimed at preparing instructors to effectively teach UWM’s diverse student body. ITTJ focuses on how inclusive teaching can contribute to UWM’s goal of becoming a more radically welcoming and equitable campus. Instructors who complete the workshop series will further their understanding of how to apply inclusive teaching practices in their course planning and 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
