Ben Chrisinger, CTL Graduate Fellow, City & Regional Planning

Friday, October 17 | 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

Graduate Student Workshops

Location: Graduate Student Center 205 (2nd floor conference room)

Summary: Even if they aren’t on your course’s syllabus, race, gender, class and a range of other issues including ethnicity and sexual identity inevitably play a role in your classroom, and influence both your interactions with students and their interactions with one another. This workshop will draw upon the classroom experiences of participants to focus on how to recognize potential issues emerging with your students. We will share strategies for forming an inclusive classroom and addressing bias, while at the same time discuss useful campus resources for seeking more information or getting specialized advice.
