Inclusive Teaching at Lane
How can faculty members welcome, engage, and support all our students? This year, FPD is sponsoring a series of brown bags, panel discussions, and workshops so that we as faculty may engage with definitions of inclusive teaching; learn about, consider, and implement new strategies for creating inclusive classrooms; and share ideas with our colleagues.
"33 Simple Strategies for Faculty" Faculty Workshop with Dr. Lisa Nunn
Friday, Oct. 30, from 10 a.m.-12 p.m.
In her “33 Simple Strategies for Faculty” workshop, Dr. Nunn will share her research into the experiences of first-generation students along with a series of straightforward strategies faculty can use in the classroom and in office hours to better support students.
Attendance at the workshop will fulfill professional development requirements in diversity, social justice, and cultural competency. Faculty Professional Development has limited funds to support part-time faculty participation in the faculty workshop; the earlier you RSVP, the more likely you will be able to receive support for attendance. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
Dr. Nunn is an educational sociologist and the Director of the Center for Educational Excellence at the University of San Diego. Dr. Nunn’s book, 33 Simple Strategies for Faculty, focuses on the experiences of first-year and first-generation students, and has been awarded the 2020 Scholarly Contributions to Teaching and Learning award from the American Sociological Association. This workshop is sponsored by Faculty Professional Development and the Office of Equity and Inclusion, with the help of a grant from the Oregon Education Association.
