Common Grounds: A Breakfast Series on Inclusive Teaching
The purpose of Common Grounds is to provide a space for faculty members and all of those who educate our students to discuss best practices for inclusive teaching. How can we build a sense of belonging within the classroom that prioritizes the student experience and learning outcomes? How can we help our students to thrive?
Let’s cultivate a learning community for engineering educators who focus on individual student success by highlighting learning as a personal experience. Topics that will be discussed include transparency, academic belonging, structured interactions, purposeful engagement of difference, and flexibility. This is a place for you to learn from your peers as you discuss monthly topics and enjoy the community that comes from enjoying a meal together.
