Certificate in Inclusive Teaching

The goal of this certificate is to encourage faculty to examine their beliefs about diversity, gain knowledge/understanding about how diversity and identity influence higher edutation, and to work towards developing humility and sensitivity to create inclusive classrooms and workplaces.  This certificate will docus on helping faculty integrate pedagogical principles aligned with inclusive excellence into the learning environment, course design and assignments to increase awareness of the importance of diversity, equity and inclusion in the classroom, and contribute to student success. Participants will walk away with concrete skills/techniques that they can use in their interaction with students and in their classrooms.

This year’s IID focuses on teaching across cultural strengths and assets and we are very fortunate to be able to host both the authors of the book, Drs. Susan Longerbeam and Alicia Chavez. These authors/facilitators come highly recommended and we are excited about this opportunity!

More about the IID workshop:

 This interactive session will introduce participants to a model of cultural strengths in learning, teaching, development, and facilitating. Activities will be facilitated in the session to assist participants to apply introspection to understand how our own cultural values, beliefs, assumptions, and behaviors manifest in ways we as professionals design for, interpret, interact with, and engage students in person as well as through policy, services, physical aspects of campus, and services. Participants will be guided to discuss and apply a balance of cultural strengths to redesign with a balance of cultural strengths in collegiate processes and services including in pedagogical, assessment, advising, mentoring, supervising, communications, websites, operations and more as well as interaction techniques to facilitate student learning and development.

Interrupting Racism Workshops (2 credit per session)

Our goal is to create a workshop that can be used at every CSU campus to help faculty become aware of their unconscious biases and preferences and through that awareness, to transform the way hiring, evaluation and retention are done. Everyone has unconscious biases and preferences.
