2022 INCLUSIVE Summit Disciplinary Matters: Sciences Session

INCLUSIVE: A Faculty-Focused Showcase of Equitable & Effective Teaching Description We all strive to ensure that our teaching is informed by research and beneficial to our students, especially those who are least advantaged. Often, we rely on colleagues within our departments or teaching and learning centers for feedback and ideas. Less accessible to us are the innovative and inclusive pedagogies that are actively being piloted and refined outside of our home institutions. The INCLUSIVE summit will feature practical approaches to effective, equitable, and technology-supported teaching and learning. During this half-day, virtual event, faculty from across disciplines and institutions will share their experiences applying principles of culturally responsive teaching, digital learning, community building, and data-informed instruction to meet the needs of their courses and students. INCLUSIVE is a unique opportunity to connect with like-minded peers, learn about emerging practices, and engage in discussions about how to adapt strategies and resources for new and distinct teaching situations.

In this webinar, join your peers in deep discussions about the pedagogical challenges facing faculty who are teaching within the sciences. These conversations will be led by exemplar faculty in the disciplines of math, writing, and the sciences. Together, you will hear about and examine the practical approaches and tools that colleagues within your discipline are using to center equity into their course design, curriculum, and classroom. A separate session will be held for faculty support staff and administrative and academic leaders interested in learning how they can best support faculty to redesign critical courses and leverage innovative educational technologies across modality types.

Speaker: Dr. Kimberly Fishback, Life Sciences Department Head at Wake Tech Community College
