This Friday October 15th, join a conversation with Sayali Kukday about "Building Community and Inclusive Teaching".

Our STEM courses are reflections of the contemporary world. Students’ sense of belonging, engagement, and motivation are increased in courses where they feel included and visible. Inclusive teaching facilitates positive learning experiences for all students, improving outcomes especially for marginalized learners. Creating inclusive classrooms is a journey that begins with reflecting on the three elements of inclusive teaching (Dewsbury and Brame, 2019). During this session you’ll learn some practical strategies to build community and teach inclusively, especially in large-enrollment STEM courses. You’ll have a chance to reflect on these strategies with fellow FALCoNers and tap into our hive mind.
Sit down with other engaged colleagues on Zoom. Based on research by the Summer Institutes, supports are three times more important than barriers in implementing Scientific Teaching in classrooms. Join us for support with the National Institute on Scientific Teaching, formerly the Summer Institutes (Bathgate et al., 2019a, 2019b).
