The UDL Your Course Series was designed to support faculty members on their exploration and understanding of the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) Framework. Universal Design for Learning is an inclusive model for teaching that centers the needs of students with disabilities, with the overall goal of creating a learning environment that is accessible by all students without the need for accommodations. In this third workshop, Inclusive Classroom Participation, we will crowdsource ideas on how to maximize the use of discussion boards, set up effective think-pair-share activities, and assess student participation with inclusivity in mind. These strategies aim to center the needs of students with disabilities but can also enhance participation experiences for all learners. Please note: Attendees do not need to attend the UDL Your Course Workshop Series in any particular order.

Cognitive biases—the “mental shortcuts” we all use to help make quick decisions—are different from overt prejudice, but can still be detrimental to members of underrepresented groups. In the promotion and tenure process, these subtle preferences (like a tendency to feel more positively about someone similar to oneself; or a preference for established forms of disciplinary research) can impact BIPOC faculty’s time to tenure and promotion, and ultimately their engagement and retention at universities. In this EAB-facilitated simulation activity, promotion and tenure committees can practice recognizing these biases in a low-stakes setting. Committee members evaluate a fictional case study of a professor going up for tenure, discuss the biases that can influence tenure decisions, and learn what research tells us about the role of biases in BIPOC and underrepresented-minority (URM) faculty retention.

In order to reduce assumptions that we make about students, we must find a pause between our internal reaction and external reaction to classroom behavior while facilitating classroom activities. In this fourth Equity Workshop, we will discuss strong facilitation skills and methods to address classroom behaviors that can disrupt sense of belonging in your course.

All Equity Workshops can be applied to the Adjunct Teaching Excellence Program for the Inclusive Teaching Practices competency synchronous component (Adjunct Faculty participating only need to attend one of the Equity Workshops) and the Teaching for Inclusion and Equity Foundational Badge.
