Part of the Summer Digital Teaching Forum Series hosted by UTSA Academic Innovation
Faculty often categorize diversity by things we perceive such as race, age, and gender, or other physical attributes. It is important to think beyond what we can observe to include invisible diversity that encompasses characteristics such as different world views, place of origin, income, religion, and sexual orientation. ?We each come into the classroom with our own experiences, views, beliefs, and biases. ?These shape our interactions, our understanding, and our teaching. In this session, faculty will discuss the hallmarks of creating an inclusive class environment by identifying what works for them in their courses, and how those ideas may transfer effectively to teaching online.
