ATD Teaching & Learning Institute: The Paradigm Shift: What Happens When Taking an Equity-minded Approach to Teaching and Learning?

Viewers will learn from equity minded faculty who have successfully implemented culturally responsive teaching practices, tools, and strategies that are leading to student success, engagement, and improved outcomes. Presenters share their experiences in developing course curriculum, assignments, and content that validate, affirm, and embrace the diverse perspectives, lived experiences and cultures of the student they serve. This session will provide guidance and support as it relates to intentionally making a paradigm shift to equity minded teaching and learning.
