External Teaching Development Opportunity
The W.W & Norton Company is putting on a workshop series called Equity-Minded Pedagogy. Join Bryan Dewsbury from Florida International University for his workshop called Belonging: Create a Welcoming Learning Environment.
Official workshop description:
Students’ sense of belonging and safety is closely associated with their motivation and success. On the other hand, a lack of perceived belonging and/or “chilly” climate has been associated with course disengagement and even institutional withdrawal. After outlining the research on belonging, Bryan Dewsbury (Florida International University) will guide participants to determine various ways their teaching practice could help students cultivate feelings of belonging in their teaching, including in online and hybrid learning environments.
