Equity, Diversity & Inclusion in TAing Workshop: Social Sciences & Humanities
September 28 at 4:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
As a Teaching Assistant, you are an important resource for both students and Instructors. You can help build a more equitable learning environment by how you set expectations, manage online and in-person classroom interactions, and how you approach evaluating student work. Equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) is not just about the content that you teach; it is about how the class is set up and conducted.
In this workshop you will learn about power and privilege within the learning environment, the policies and guidelines that frame your work, and how best to support students as you navigate ethical dilemmas and potential conflicts. This online synchronous session is foundational to supporting an equitable and inclusive learning environment, while enhancing department and program-specific TA training.
