This June, the Center for Teaching Innovation (CTI) is offering a series of online programs on inclusive teaching for the Cornell community: Teaching and Learning in the Diverse Classroom, two learning communities on inclusive teaching, and a special event, Equity Changemaking in the Classroom and Beyond.

Creating equitable, inclusive learning environments is critical to an engaging student learning experience, particularly in light of the health and social crises affecting the nation and the world, said Melina Ivanchikova, CTI’s associate director for inclusive teaching.

The entire Cornell teaching community is invited to join Teaching and Learning in the Diverse Classroom, which runs June 1-30. This four-week, instructor-paced online course explores inclusive course design, social identity and self-reflection, and teaching strategies to support student engagement and a sense of belonging.

CTI is also facilitating two learning communities on inclusive teaching: one for faculty, and one for graduate students and postdoctoral researchers (with the office of Future Faculty and Academic Careers). These learning communities offer their respective audiences a six-week online discussion program on creating and sustaining inclusive learning environments.
