Preparing for an Inclusive Hybrid Course

Archana Alwar and Weina Sun facilitating Inclusive Practices Workshop via Zoom

As we’re anticipating a re-opening of the campus in the coming year, we need to start considering how to bring what we’ve learned about effective teaching in a virtual class to our face-to-face courses. Promoting inclusivity and diversity in the classroom is the instructor’s privilege and responsibility. How can we do this in a hybrid or blended class model? Join Weina Sun and Archana Alwar to explore how you can apply equity and access practices to hybrid teaching and cultivate a sense of belonging for our students.

This workshop will include examples, group discussions, scenarios, role-playing, and opportunities to grow. By the end of the workshop participants will be able to:

  • Recognize the scope of inclusivity and diversity in hybrid instruction
  • Raise awareness of assumptions and biases in the learning environment
  • Provide a balance between in-class and online methods of course delivery to support students learning
  • Identify areas of improvement for equity, diversity, and inclusion and diversify the curriculum
  • Plan to implement new pedagogical approaches or other changes to your course

Poly-synchronous: October 7 – November 9 on Canvas with two synchronous meetings,
Tuesdays, October 12 and November 9, 2:30 – 4:00 p.m.

15 PD Hours | $250 stipend for faculty who complete the workshop deliverables.
