Over the past two years faculty have begun to teach new or existing courses for the AU Core’s Diversity & Equity (DIV) requirement. Moderators will prompt panelists from across campus and disciplines to reflect upon opportunities and challenges of teaching DIV courses: updating the canon, making space for students’ identities and experiences, accomplishing our course goals alongside DIV learning outcomes, and feeling a lack of expertise. Participants will discuss pedagogical strategies for delivering on our commitments to students.
