Towards a Pedagogy of Belonging: Ensuring Inclusion in Design and Practice
February 10, 2023, 2-3:30 pm via Zoom
Making students feel a sense of belonging is a common goal for instructors, but what does it actually mean? How can instructors design their courses to ensure that all students feel belonging? This workshop is an opportunity for instructors to engage with these questions, to reflect on how their own pedagogical practices, and to learn new strategies for embedding belonging in their course design. Participants will be introduced to some of the research on belonging and its importance for creating safe and welcoming learning environments. Different strategies will be discussed to create opportunities for student belonging throughout the course: the first point of contact with the instructor, in the classroom, and beyond the end of the quarter.
Facilitated by Dr. Christian Reyes.
