Course Description

Description: 

This cohort-based program will focus on equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) within post-secondary 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.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand the implications of their positionality (social identities) and those of their students’ in the context of teaching and learning
  • Demonstrate an appreciation for diversity by exploring ways to incorporate multiple perspectives into the curriculum 
  • Identifying inclusive teaching strategies catering to all students, including BIPOC, LGBTQ2A+, Persons with Disabilities, neurotypical among others. 
  • Reflect on their teaching in view of systemic inequalities and its impact on equity deserving groups
