Watch On Demand

Inclusive teaching ensures that all students feel they have the chance to participate in the classroom and in the learning process. As the pandemic gives colleges the opportunity to rethink how they teach, what can college leaders and administrators do to support faculty and make sure students have the chance to thrive?

The Chronicle has assembled a panel of experts to answer that question in a virtual forum, Teaching for Inclusivity: What College Leaders Need to Know.

In this special 75-minute session, our panelists will examine:

  • How do administrators, faculty leaders, and heads of campus teaching-and-learning centers create an environment where inclusive practices are encouraged?

  • How do they expand instructors’ awareness of inclusivity ideas, especially in disciplines like math and the sciences?

  • How do campus leaders help their faculty members better understand why participation imbalances exist in the classroom — and how to overcome them?

AGENDA


2:00 | Welcome

2:05 | Chronicle Presentation
Closing Equity Gaps
Higher ed likes to see itself as a force for equity. But traditional teaching practices can widen, rather than close, existing disparities in student performance. Two experts in inclusive teaching will share evidence-based inclusive teaching practices that can help level the playing field, explain how college leaders can support such teaching on their campuses, and detail how doing so will further institutional goals.
Panelists:
  • Viji Sathy, Associate Dean for Evaluation and Assessment for the College of Arts & Sciences, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
  • Kelly Hogan, Associate Dean of Instructional Innovation, College of Arts & Sciences, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

2:30 | Adobe Sponsor Segment
Teaching to Include across the Digital Divide
Dr. Wanda White discusses the realities of the digital divide as it threatens not only access to increasingly digital educational opportunities, but also inclusion in increasingly digitally transformed cultures and economies. She discusses how Winston-Salem State University was the first HBCU to partner with Adobe through the Creative Campus program to help close the digital divide.
Panelist:
  • Wanda White, Director, Center for Innovative and Transformative Instruction (CITI), Winston-Salem State University

2:45 | Chronicle Presentation
Connecting to Student Success
How is the push for inclusive teaching playing out across disciplines and institution types? What obstacles stand in the way of instructors’ embracing this approach? How can college leaders connect what happens in the classroom to campus-wide student success efforts? A panel of experts will tackle these questions -– and those posed by our audience.
Panelists:
  • Sara Brownell, Professor, School of Life Sciences, Arizona State University
  • Jamiella Brooks, Associate Director, Center for Teaching and Learning, University of Pennsylvania
