Teachin’ It! Tips to Facilitate Inclusive, Inquiry-Based Learning Online

This workshop consists of three interactive modules offered via Zoom at 1:00 - 2:30 p.m. CST on Friday, October 2nd, Friday October 9th, and Friday, October 16th. Participants can register for one, two, or all three modules. Participants earn a digital badge and certificate upon completing the three modules and a post-workshop evaluation.

Workshop Description

Are you feeling a sense of urgency to become an expert in equitable, inclusive instruction that amplifies students’ voices and builds on the strengths of learners from every background? Are you motivated to transition your in-person classes to distance education classes that incorporate high-leverage online moves? This series of three interactive Teachin’ It! modules offers practical strategies for delivering high-quality online instruction that disrupts larger systemic inequities at the classroom level. Participants receive strategies they can use to foster an online classroom where students from every background feel safe to experiment, take risks, and make mistakes; invited to communicate their unique approaches and perspectives; and free to develop their own identities as powerful lifelong learners. There is also a focus on synchronous and asynchronous learning using Zoom, iPhones, iPads, Google Docs, PlayPosit, and Canvas.

Prior to each module, participants receive excerpts from Teachin’ It! Breakout Moves That Break Down Barriers for Community College Students, written by Dr. Felicia Darling, and a list of equity moves. In addition, participants will be sent a pre-workshop survey that asks what they hope to get out of each module.
