Course Description

This course focuses on equity, diversity, inclusion, and accessibility (EDIA) within postsecondary teaching and learning. This course 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 analyze 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 drafting an EDIA Statement, that will encourage them to reflect on their beliefs about EDI and how they seek to promote those values through their teaching practice.
