TI 0995 - Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion
This program focuses on equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) within postsecondary teaching and learning. This program requires participants to reflect on their own positionality and its impact within the classroom, while also examining their pedagogical practice through an equitable lens. Participants will also analyse exclusion and inclusion within their discipline and curriculum, actively working to identify inclusive and equitable teaching strategies to promote an equitable learning environment for all students. The capstone project will involve participants completing a Diversity statement worksheet, that will encourage them to reflect on their beliefs about EDI and how they seek to promote those values through their teaching practice.
