401: Let’s Talk: The Faculty Development Leadership Cohort (FDLC) on Diversity and Inclusion

Presenters: Jason Fabrikant (School of Professional & Extended Studies), Nikhat Ghouse (Library), Kiho Kim (CTRL / CAS-Environmental Science) & Steve Silvia (School of International Service)

Location: Butler Board Room

At the end of this workshop participants should be able to:

  • Understand the purpose of the Faculty Development Leadership Cohort (FDLC) on Diversity and Inclusion
  • Discuss classroom strategies that promote an inclusive classroom

How do you teach in a way that’s inclusive? How do you engage students from different backgrounds and cultures and identities? How do you make sure that students see themselves in the syllabus and in the curriculum? In 2017 AU launched a new Faculty Development Leadership Cohort (FDLC) on Diversity and Inclusion to address these questions, and to train a group of AU faculty in facilitating workshops and discussions on issues of race and inclusion. Come hear what some of the members from the first two FDLC cohorts took away from their experience, and help us generate ideas on how to further spread knowledge, engagement, and skills among our faculty on how to be inclusive teachers and community members.
