Fostering an Inclusive Classroom
Thursday, April 6, 2017

Collaborative Teaching and Learning Building (CTLB) - Room 110
Issues of diversity, stereotype threat, and unconscious bias can impede learning in the classroom. In this workshop we present ways to address these concerns by promoting inclusion and fairness in small-group activities and assessment. We will also discuss evidence-based methods for improving student performance on summative assessments, particularly among under-represented groups.
Facilitators: Laura Weise Cross (ASERT Postdoctoral Fellow, UNM Dept. Cell Biology & Physiology); Lindsey J. Long (ASERT Postdoctoral Fellow, UNM Dept. Molecular Genetics & Microbiology); Alfreda Nelson (ASERT Postdoctoral Fellow, UNM Dept. Pathology)
