Each summer two or three of the faculty workshops focus on teaching, includingtopics such as gender and race in the classroom; experiential learning; and learning outcomes and assessments. These are workshops in which faculty share bestpractices for creating environments that foster inclusion and belonging in teachingand learning.
This practice provides an example ofhow to schedule formal time and spacefor faculty members to share how theycreate and foster inclusion and belonging through teaching and learning. Thebroader practice of sharing knowledge andskills can be adopted by all communitymembers. Examples can be workshops,trainings, diversity dialogues, and community readings led by and for members of the community. A designated time andspace should be formally set aside forthese activities.
