This institute invites participants to explore how they can teach diversity, how they can use existing classroom diversity to help students learn from each other, and how they can encourage students to become more accepting of social differences. Participants will develop teaching interventions and explore measures to investigate how these interventions affect student learning and attitudes. Diversity, for this Institute, includes racial, gender, class, sexual orientation, ability-based, religious, language, ideological, and other differences. The Institute is open to faculty in all disciplines.
This institute is designed for faculty to make progress toward the following outcomes:
- get to know central scholarly sources on diversity and multicultural education in higher education;
- reflect on diversity in their own classes;
- develop effective teaching interventions for their own classes; and
- review, evaluate, and possibly develop qualitative and/or quantitative instruments to measure whether their teaching interventions are effective.
