Recording: Building Inclusive and Equitable Syllabi and Assignments (forthcoming)

August 12, 2022

As we prepare for the next academic year, many of us reflect on our past practices in an effort to make improvements that would enhance student learning and experiences in our classrooms. For many, the syllabus, that welcome email or the D2L news feed will be your students’ first introduction to our course. Catherine Polydore, Chair and Professor  of Counseling and Higher Education explore how, as academicians, we can have blind spots in our practices that create micro-barriers to our students’ success. In this workshop, Dr. Polydore discusses what it means to be inclusive and equitable, we will learn about inclusive and equitable pedagogy, and what they look like in the syllabus and various assignments.

This hybrid workshop was offered as part of the 2022 FDIC August Institute.
