Teaching and Learning Center hosts inclusive teaching book club
The Teaching and Learning Center invites you to a fall 2022 book club discussion on Kelly A. Hogan and Viji Sathy's "Inclusive Teaching: Strategies for Promoting Equity in the College Classroom," published this year by the West Virginia University Press.
The book emphasizes how using explicit attention to structure enhances inclusiveness in both course design and interactions with and between students. The book is a quick read and includes practical teaching tips and steps to increase inclusivity in your existing courses.
Hale Library has an electronic copy of the book, which is available for your use. Each Friday listed below, we will provide a coffee hour from 8:30-9:20 a.m. on Zoom or an in-person afternoon snack option from 2:30-3:20 p.m. in 307 Hale Library. We will discuss several book chapters in each meeting over the course of the semester in the following schedule:
- Friday, Oct. 28 — Chapter 3: "Designing Your Course and Syllabus with an Inclusive Mind-set" and Chapter 4: "Launching Your Course."
- Friday, Dec. 2 — Chapter 5: "Classroom Environment and Interactions," Chapter 6: "Inclusive Practices Outside the Classroom" and Chapter 7: "Reflecting and Documenting Your Inclusive Practices."
Please RSVP for the events you will attend.
We look forward to discussing this book with you this semester.
