Spring 2023 Graduate Student and Postdoc Reading Community

  • 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
  • TBD

Event Description

Join fellow graduate students, postdocs, and CTL staff for sustained cross-disciplinary conversation on critical topics in teaching and learning.

Book cover for InclusiveTeachingThe Graduate Student and Postdoc Reading Community discussions in Spring 2023 will involve chapters from Kelly Hogan and Viji Sathy’s recent book, Inclusive Teaching: Strategies for Promoting Equity in the College Classroom. In this book, Hogan and Sathy summarize and translate empirical research on inclusive and equitable teaching into concrete, actionable strategies to support all student learners. They offer highly-portable strategies related to course design and structure, the first days of the semester, the wider learning environment, and student-instructor interactions.

Participants are expected to attend at least 4 of the 6 meetings. Participants who are local and can pick up their book at WashU will receive a copy of the book courtesy of the CTL. Seats are limited.

Meeting Mode: There will be a Zoom link provided for all sessions. In addition, three of our six sessions will have an opportunity for in-person engagement as well. Those who can and who are comfortable doing so are encouraged to participate in-person during the three hybrid sessions.

Meetings will be from 3:30-4:20pm the following Tuesdays. Tuesdays with an asterisk* indicate that there will be an in-person option for this meeting.
