Diverse Mindset

The Teaching with a Diverse Mindset workshop is a co-taught workshop with the Learning Science Lab and Gary Fraser. This session is designed to bring faculty together to set an intention to support and cultivate diversity of thought, perspectives, and experiences in their teaching practice and promote student learning in an inclusive environment. 

In this workshop we will provide strategies for incorporating diverse perspectives into the curriculum and creating an inclusive learning community through knowing your students, class participation tips, and building diverse student teams. We will share with you the learning science behind these tactics and how they enhance student learning and build a true sense of belonging.
