Event Date & Time

  • May 11, 2022

Event Description

This event is part of the 2022 Celebrate Learning Week.

The Equity & Inclusion Scholars program has funded six projects across disciplines to develop and test innovative approaches for building capacity for transformative teaching and learning through the integration of equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) in teaching related scholarship. The range of projects include curricula development, instructional practice, capacity-building and assessment, as they intersect with EDI in teaching and learning. Project teams will share how their work, as part of the E&I Scholars Program, holds the potential to enhance the experiences of students who are historically or currently marginalized or excluded from higher education, and how their interventions can be applied to formal teaching practice to related disciplines, and are collaborative and build on existing resources and expertise on campus.
