The Inclusive Classrooms Summer Symposium is an annual skill building event for members of the Gillings community to create more inclusive classroom experiences. With varying topics every year, the symposium provides instructors, including faculty, instructional staff, and teaching assistants, with history, theory, and practical skills to critically analyze their course content, delivery methods, and assessment materials to foster more inclusive teaching environments.
This year we will be focusing on decolonizing learning spaces within academia, including auditing your course to improve inclusiveness and managing interpersonal interactions and fostering classroom relationships that reduce the incidence and impact of microaggressions.
