Diversity Works: Cultivating Opportunities for Working with Allies

Graduate students from diverse backgrounds interact with individuals who, while we may consider them as members of ally communities, do not consistently act as allies. Participants will discuss examples of this challenge and possible methods to responding in constructive ways. Interactive activities include role-plays, scenarios, and vignettes in which participants can learn how to model “in the moment” response strategies.

Engaging Students and Making Classrooms Fair and Inclusive: Cross-Disciplinary Tools, Insights, and Strategies to Promote Student Success

Teaching diverse populations of students requires instructors to construct learning environments that are inclusive and equitable. Research in psychology and other disciplines suggests that how students personally experience learning environments strongly influences engagement, motivation, sense of belonging, and conceptual learning. In this interactive workshop, participants will share a common experience as the basis for discussing how students may experience classroom environments differently from one another.

Maximizing Learning by Moving Towards Active Learning in 1-, 5-, or 20-minutes

In this interactive workshop, participants will experience multiple examples of how active learning can work in undergraduate courses, with a particular emphasis on biology and chemistry. Attendees will experience examples of how to integrate active learning in 1-minute, 5-minutes, 10-minutes, and 20-minutes that highlight common teaching strategies. In addition, participants will explore how student work produced during active learning can be systematically analyzed quickly to guide teaching decisions.
