Ann Haley Mackenzie, a Miami University associate professor of Science Education, will be leading an inclusive teaching workshop from 3-5 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 15, in room 270 of the Engineering Building (EGB).
Renowned for her expertise in inclusive pedagogy, Mackenzie will lead participants through an engaging and interactive in-person workshop. The workshop will focus on four main topic areas: demographic statistics in STEM, identity and implicit bias, culturally responsive teaching, and inclusive teaching strategies.
Attendees can connect with other educators and learn easy-to-use, evidence-based strategies in order to foster welcoming learning environments that promote student success.
“As teaching professionals, we must examine our pedagogy regularly and adapt based on current engineering education research. By including inclusive practices in our pedagogy, we can promote belongingness and help retain students in engineering and computing,” said Dean Beena Sukumaran.
Participants who attend and incorporate what they have learned in their classroom teaching are encouraged to document these efforts in their annual activity reports.
There are seats still available. Interested CEC faculty and staff can register online.
