Teaching Inclusively and Equitably Online

Attend a Free Online Workshop on Thursday, April 9, 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM ET

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted undergraduate instruction, forcing institutions to take their content online. The NSF INCLUDES Aspire Alliance National Change team, in collaboration with the ACS, is offering a new workshop that is designed to help faculty, instructional staff, Teaching Assistants (TAs)/Graduate Student Instructors (GSIs), and support staff effectively transition to online learning environments, while maintaining a focus on inclusive and equitable practices.

Rather than focus on technical instruction for a particular online platform, this workshop will provide instructors with an inclusive, evidence-based, pedagogical framework that they can apply as they shift their face-to-face courses to the online environment. The workshop is designed to equip instructors with concrete strategies to promote equity, inclusion, and active engagement in the online environment. As a result of participating in this hands-on session, participants will (1) understand the value and need for creating inclusive learning environments in the online setting, and (2) use a lens of equity and inclusion to explore strategies for developing course learning goals, learning objectives, teaching methods/activities/materials, assessment, and evaluation. Please register to participate; this event will be capped at 150 participants. Chemistry faculty in higher education settings are welcome to register to attend!
