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. Participants will learn principles and practices of inclusive course design and classroom facilitation.

ITTJ Session 2: Building Inclusive Classroom Communities

This session addresses why an inclusive classroom community (or its absence) matters to student learning. We will explore ways to foster students’ sense of belonging and to engage conflict constructively in the classroom. Participants will leave able to:

  • Name factors that contribute to belonging and a welcoming climate—and factors that impede this
  • Practice at least one concrete way of building class community
  • Describe considerations and strategies an instructor might use to handle conflict moments in the classroom

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 2 virtually, that session will occur the same week on Thursday and has its own registration. Please return to our workshop calendar to locate the registration page for that session.
