During the week of August 9-13, 2021, join the CTL for a week-long teaching conference for CU Boulder faculty, graduate students and teaching staff who would like to prepare for the fall semester with a focus on equity-minded practices. Each day's programming centers around a theme, and will begin with a casual coffee hour conversation. There will be two daily opportunities to join interactive workshops, and each day closes with a happy hour conversation.
The Center for Urban Education (CUE), located at the University of Southern California, defines equity mindedness as "the outlook, perspective, or mode of thinking exhibited by practitioners who call attention to patterns of inequity in student outcomes, and are willing to assume personal and institutional responsibility for the elimination of inequity." Conference participants will learn how educators can take responsibility for the climate in their classrooms, employ new teaching practices that are proactively inclusive, and create spaces of belonging in their classrooms for all students.
