CITL: Handling Microaggressions in the Classroom
November 14, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
The Rising Tide Center and the Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning are excited to bring you the second in a series of events focused on recruiting and retaining majors through increasing student inclusivity & engagement.
A driving force in student persistence and retention in programs is their sense of belonging and community. Classrooms, whether online or in person, create a perfect space to foster acceptance and feeling valued, but small gestures and unintentional actions can also inadvertently promote anxiety and isolation. In this workshop, we will explore these concepts, work through common scenarios encountered in UMaine classrooms and outline ways to ensure equitable treatment of all students to advance their involvement, engagement and success in your programs.
Lunch will be provided for registered participants.
