    Session Description

    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. 

    Learning Outcomes

    • Learn how diversity and equity are scaffolded throughout the AU Core curriculum
    • Gain a better understanding of how different disciplines integrate the DIV requirements into their classes
    • Discuss the opportunities and challenges of teaching DIV courses
    • Identify pedagogical strategies that can be helpful when teaching DIV courses
