Hybrid, Biweekly, Fridays from 10:00-11:00am
This is a collaborative, faculty-led, practically-oriented community focusing on fostering equity through developing our syllabi and engaging them meaningfully in class. The group will focus not only on “how-to” craft an inclusive/equity-centering syllabus, but how to continue to engage the syllabus throughout the semester toward fostering equity in the classroom and institutionally. Meetings are intended to be conversational and collaborative workshops, with attendees co-facilitating as/if needed, and sharing and discussing syllabus elements, engagement strategies, successes, and conundrums. We will also work with and be informed by literature on critical pedagogies, social justice education, and equity, as these become relevant in the group.
In Fall 2022, the syllabus working group will continue to develop a sharable “equity starter pack” for syllabi to include suggested language, organizational structures, and ways to present and engage the syllabus throughout the semester.
