In this workshop and conversation, we will examine your current ways and new strategies to embed and sustain course designs and strategies that invite, welcome. and value diverse student perspectives and backgrounds. Through language, transparency, examples, and actions, we can weaken some of the barriers that impede learning and create course climates that encourage and support all learners. We will explore an equity mindset that approaches teaching by asking not only what and how we teach, but who we teach.
