The CTL and the Office of the Provost will collaborate to offer the Faculty Pedagogy and Curriculum Enhancement Program: Creating Equitable, Inclusive Learning Environments beginning in Fall 2023. Applications are now open!
This program is a year-long opportunity for faculty wishing to learn about and develop a plan for enacting inclusive and anti-racist practices in their teaching and curriculum design in a collaborative, cohort-based setting. The program will use a Faculty Learning Community (FLC) model to support faculty as they develop equitable and inclusive learning practices for a particular upcoming course.
Faculty participants will make a year-long commitment (Fall 2023-Spring 2024), setting a plan for implementing pedagogical or curricular changes (ideally) in their Spring 2024 course. The total time commitment is anticipated to be between 30 and 35 hours total, which includes cohort meetings, individual course planning, and time for reflection. In Fall 2023, the cohort will meet 8 times (twice per month) and in Spring 2024, the cohort will meet 4 times (once per month). Each cohort meeting will be 60 minutes in length. The standing session dates and times will be determined based on availability of participants.
Faculty who actively participate throughout the cohort meetings, develop and then implement their inclusive teaching plan for a Spring 2024 course, and complete the program reflection will receive a $2,000.00 inclusive teaching grant in the form of a contribution to the faculty member’s professional development, discretionary, or research account from the Office of the Provost.
Any full-time faculty who teach on the Danforth Campus and who are interested in making their pedagogical practices and curriculum more inclusive and equitable are welcome to apply. The cohort for Fall 2023-Spring 2024 is limited to 12 faculty participants. The application deadline for the Fall 2023-Spring 2024 program is Monday, June 5th.
