LC2: Beyond Participation: Inclusive Student Engagement (for grads)
September 28 @ 11:40 am - 12:55 pm
CTLgrads Learning Community: Beyond Participation: Inclusive Perspectives on Student Engagement and Feedback (Session 2) – for graduate students
Register here. Student participation is desirable in any classroom, and yet it remains challenging to define its scope: how can we address the value of participation effectively and through an inclusive lens?
This two-part learning community will focus both on the student perspective and the instructor perspective of participation, namely student engagement and feedback, while considering the intersections between these practices and those of inclusive teaching. On the one hand, we will work on defining and setting expectations for student engagement, as well as building strategies within the framework of active learning in order to provide both a theoretical and a practical approach to the challenge of creating significant learning experiences intentionally and productively. On the other hand, we will look more specifically at how instructors can harness the language of growth in the classroom when providing feedback on student engagement as another mechanism to center equity in the learning space, thus building resources to metalinguistically reflect on our own teaching lexicon.
This two-part Learning Community will meet in-person and is designed and facilitated by Laura DiNardo and Tamara Hache, Senior Lead Teaching Fellows at the Center for Teaching and Learning. Participants should register for and attend both sessions of this LC. Registration for Session 1 on Wednesday 9/21, 11:40am-12:55pm, is available here. Each session of this LC counts as a Pedagogy Workshop for the Teaching Development Program (TDP). See the TDP FAQs for more information about obtaining credit for this and other graduate student-led events through the CTL.
