The Culturally Responsive Teaching Learning Community (LC) is an opportunity for graduate students and post-doctoral scholars to critically reflect and engage issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion in the classroom. We will challenge our thinking, cultivate our curricular and pedagogical practices, share research and resources, and support our collective and respective journeys as educators for a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive society. We will foster a space that empowers both its members and ultimately, the students we serve.
Fall 2017 Meeting Dates: The LC will meet five times in fall 2017. Participants are required to attend a minimum of four meetings. All meetings will held in the Center for Teaching and Learning from 2:00 - 3:30 pm on the following Wednesdays: September 20, October 4, October 25, November 1, and November 15. Please contact Dennis Rudnick (firstname.lastname@example.org), Associate Director of the Multicultural Center, or the CIRTL Team and IUPUI with specific questions or concerns.
To ensure equitable participation and engagement, the LC will be limited to 10 members. Members will be chosen based on the quality of sentiment expressed towards diversity in the short essay questions in the applications.
The IUPUI Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) will host a MCLC for the introductory MOOC in fall and the advanced MOOC in spring. MCLCs have been shown to increase MOOC completion rates by 50%, and participants have reported that the in-person discussions are valuable and motivating.
Fall 2017 MCLC dates: The MCLC for An Introduction to Evidence-Based Undergraduate STEM Teaching will meet on the following Fridays from 3:00 - 4:00 pm: October 6 and 20, November 3 and 17. All meeting will be held in CTL located in the University Library : UL 1125M.
STEM departments with several interested participants are encouraged to host similar MCLC's facilitated by department faculty, graduate students, and/or postdocs. Please contact the CIRTL Team at IUPUI for more information for facilitating MCLCs.
