Description. As educators, we have a professional obligation to treat our students fairly, so it is natural to think that this means treating everyone the same. This workshop will explore the multiple ways that the assumptions we make as teachers can privilege certain groups while disadvantaging others. We will see that when we fail to critically examine these assumptions, treating everyone the same will not lead to an equitable learning environment.
Learning Outcomes. As a result of this session, participants will:
- gain a basic understanding of the assumptions and goals of inclusive pedagogy.
- learn the differences between equality and equity with respect to teaching practice.
- reflect self-critically about their own teaching practices.
