The Writing Intensive Curriculum Program - "How to design accessible and engaging course material." Sept 20 | 12 – 12:50 PM | Milam 215 (zoom available).
In this workshop, Design faculty members Christine Gallagher, Deann Garcia, and Andrea Marks will teach easy-to-apply design principles. (You’ll also learn what not to do!) This will be an interactive workshop during which you will learn a range of practical tips and have a chance to apply them to your own course materials. Please bring a copy of a syllabus (printed or on a laptop) to mark up or even change during the workshop. For those attending in person, please note that we will be observing COVID safety measures (distancing and masks).

The Career Champions program is a professional development opportunity for faculty and instructors to learn tangible ways to add career connection in the classroom, while advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion and examining the barriers to access for first generation students, students of color, and low-income students. Over the course of six weeks, a cohort of 14-15 faculty/instructors will participate in one synchronous session per week and one-two asynchronous hours of work on their own.
The Community for the Advancement of Antiracist Instruction (CAAI) is a faculty learning community led by and for instructors and TAs and co-sponsored by the Center for Teaching and Learning and Faculty Affairs. In spring of 2021, 15 instructors and TAs and 5 volunteer facilitators came together from colleges across campus for a four-week pilot of this new faculty learning community. Participants' experience in the community culminated in an antiracist teaching action plan grounded in critical and inclusive pedagogies. CAAI invites you to view participants' experience culminating in their action plan videos.
