Event Description

Registration for the August GSPD RC has now closed. If you would still like to participate, please contact Dr. Meg Gregory at meggregory@wustl.edu.

Join graduate student and postdoc colleagues and CTL staff for sustained cross-disciplinary conversation on critical topics in teaching and learning.

The Graduate Student and Postdoc Reading Community (GSPD RC) discussion this August will involve chapters from Tracie Marcella Addy et al.’s recent book, What Inclusive Instructors Do: Principles and Practices for Excellence in College Teaching, which focuses on key principles of inclusive, equity-minded instructors. It draws ideas from a variety of disciplines and kinds of classroom environments, providing concrete strategies for designing inclusive courses, fostering social belonging among student learners, assessing equitably, and facilitating class inclusively. Throughout the book, there are many opportunities for self-reflection on one’s own courses.

 Participants are required to commit to four of the five Zoom sessions. Priority registration will be given to those graduate students in their third years and beyond and to postdocs. Priority registration will also be provided to those who have engaged deeply in other CTL programing (e.g. Teaching Citation, EPIC, etc.).

Participants should plan to acquire a copy of the book on their own. (The CTL encourages you to support local independent booksellers with your purchase: Subterranean Books or The Novel Neighbor).

Meetings will be on Mondays and Wednesdays in August:
