Inclusive Instructional Strategies

Western Washington University College of Science and Engineering professors created an Equity and Inclusion workshop series that is offered regularly for faculty and staff. The series includes workshops in four conceptual areas: cultural awareness of self; experiences of others; critical conversations in the work place; and a call to action. The workshop series was developed while C-Core professional development workshops were being held. Instructors were encouraged to participate it the workshop series in order to better understand the research base for equity and inclusion and the importance of considering one's own identity (and potential biases) when planning one's courses.

The ideas and activities below are intended to complement the campus wide equity and inclusion resources.
