Instructional Diversity: A Faculty Panel Discussion

Diversity – as an instructional topic as well as an approach to teaching and learning – is central to a well-developed and culturally-sensitive pedagogy. But engaging with and discussing the lived experiences of others can be challenging for both students and instructors.

In this Zoom-based faculty panel discussion, you’ll hear from renowned OSU researcher educators as they discuss issues like:

  • How to talk to students about diversity
  • How to prepare & deliver a course that prioritizes diverse voices & perspectives
  • How to support marginalized students

Registration Required. Email to pre-register.
