Please join us for the Faculty Innovation Center's sixth biannual Inclusive Teaching and Learning Symposium. Day two will take place on Oct. 29. The theme for this fall's symposium is Activating Inclusivity in Learning Environments, and we've identified the following guiding questions to center our presentations and keynote speaker around:
- How does my positionality hinder action or empower me to take action?
- What tools am I using on campus to take action toward anti-racism?
- How can I incorporate anti-racism in my learning environments?
The Symposium will kick off with a keynote presentation from Dr. Nicki Washington, Professor of Practice of Computer Science at Duke University, and will be followed by a series of one-hour interactive, activating workshops spread over two days.
Scheduled Sessions on Day 1 (Tuesday, October 27)
- 9:15am-10:00am Opening Keynote with Dr. Nicki Washington, Professor of the Practice of Computer Science, Duke University
