Teaching Circles are like communities of practice in which a group of people who share a common interest and come together to fulfill both individual and group goals. This is a different, low-stakes way of developing professional teaching muscles.
During the academic year, the Inclusive Teaching Teaching Circle hosted by the Center for Diversity and Inclusion provides a bi-weekly meeting space to share best practices and create new knowledge on topics related to diversity, inclusion, equity, social justice, and teaching.
Mission of the Inclusive Teaching Circle: To connect equity-minded educators across all three campuses for development of inclusive practices and policies in the classroom and other learning spaces through sharing, discussing, practicing, and assessing relevant teaching ideas.
Who is the Inclusive Teaching Circle for: While primarily for all faculty, anyone in the Adler University community with an interest in inclusive pedagogy is welcome. We imagine this group to be useful for faculty, program directors and program administrators, librarians, student educators, and more.
What participation looks like: Attend as often as you can, get to know colleagues, listen, contribute to conversations, and plan to present an idea.
A primary goal is to share information, promising practices, and fruitful ideas within a supportive community of educators. A brief presentation (15 minutes or less) will be given each session and discussion will follow. Initially, Cheryl Richardson will present ideas, and we hope that community members will also share their ideas among colleagues.
Every other Thursday at 3pm, beginning February 24, 2022
