Event Description
Inclusive teaching receives a lot of attention and instructors are increasingly expected to deal with diversity in all its forms - student background, content knowledge, learning style and more. In this workshop, we will focus on the different components of inclusive teaching, from course design through implementation, with a particular focus on assessments that both meet course learning objectives and ensure students can demonstrate learning.   Workshop Facilitators:  Shaunna McLeod is a fourth-year Ph.D. candidate in Chemistry Department. At Northwestern, she has been a TA for general chemistry and advanced laboratory courses in addition to completing the Searle Teaching Certificate Program in 2018. Her teaching interests center on active learning strategies and laboratory instruction as a means to promote the relevance of material and retention of students in STEM. Sasha Klyachkina is a sixth-year Ph.D. candidate in the Political Science department researching governance, violence and armed conflict, and citizen engagement, with a focus on the North Caucasus. She has served as a TA for a range of political science courses from introductory to upper level classes on Middle East Politics, Political Development, and Environmental Policy. She currently leads the Political Science Teaching Committee, which organizes pedagogical discussions, the new TA mentorship program, and peer teaching observations.
