PANEL & ROUNDTABLE: Creating Community: Strategies for Equity and Inclusion in the Classroom (90 mins)
A large body of research on inclusive pedagogies shows that learning outcomes for students are improved when all students feel visible, valued, safe, and welcomed in the classroom. As a minority majority institution, Mason has a very diverse student body--race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexuality, age, religion, ability status, veteran status, first generation, non-native speakers, immigration status, etc. However, Mason faculty is not as diverse. In this session we will discuss inclusive values and strategies that you can use to support your students' learning.
