Liam's Legacy Inclusive Teaching Symposium

LIAM'S LEGACY: AN INCLUSIVE TEACHING SYMPOSIUM  

Presented by Serve-Learn-Sustain and the Center for Teaching and Learning, in partnership with the School of History and Sociology through a grant from the Gertrude and William C. Wardlaw Fund in support of the Conference on Human Rights, Changes and Challenges. 

FRIDAY OCTOBER 22ND, 9AM-5PM 

Faculty and staff are invited to join Serve-Learn-Sustain (SLS) and the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) for the Liam's Legacy Inclusive Teaching Symposium.  As educators and instructors, we all share in the responsibility to create inclusive learning environments.  Even if the content we teach doesn't directly address issues of social identity, the impacts of historical and current exclusion of and violence against BIPOC communities are felt in all corners of the academy.  We all recognize the urgency and the enormity of the problem, yet many of us feel unsure of what actions we can take as educators to make higher education more just. 

SLS and CTL bring you a day long symposium seeking to equip anyone who teaches with strategies and resources to create belonging and inclusivity in their classrooms - of any size, disciplinary focus, and model!  Topics will include: 

  • Best practices . . . from small and simple to big and ambitious 
  • Student perspectives on creating a welcoming classroom 
  • Community-engaged and culturally-sensitive teaching 
  • Caring in the classroom: supporting students' wellbeing 

At the end of the day, participants will be invited to apply for a limited number of course development grants from Serve-Learn-Sustain, earmarked especially for symposium attendees. 

The symposium will be offered virtually (no limit on attendees) and in-person (20 attendee limit).
