Classroom Inclusivity Series Launch

We are excited to announce the "Classroom Inclusivity Series," a collaboration between various units across Rutgers University, organized and facilitated by The Center for Teaching Advancement and Assessment Research and the University Equity and Inclusion Office. The purpose of the program is to promote Inclusive Scholarship and Teaching (as identified by the Rutgers University Diversity Priorities), and in particular, to support a more well-rounded understanding of Classroom Inclusivity.

Throughout the Fall 2021 semester, Rutgers University faculty, instructors, teaching assistants, post-docs and staff are invited to attend workshops provided by different units across the university. Workshops or training sessions included within the series will address the following competencies:

Competency 1: Understand and begin to address your and your students' identities, biases, prejudices, and fears and the impact they have on learning and the classroom environment.

Competency 2: Infuse inclusive teaching practices into your educational practices by course re-design or adopting new teaching activities.

Competency 3: Ensure course content, web pages, activities, and assessments are accessible to all students.

Participants who attend three sessions (one from each competency) and submit a reflection will have the opportunity to earn a Certificate for Lifelong Learning in Inclusive & Equitable Teaching. We hope this certificate will be a useful piece of evidence for your teaching portfolio or professional portfolio to demonstrate your commitment to inclusive teaching.

To learn more about the program and register for sessions, please visit the Classroom Inclusivity Series Website.
