Feedback form is now closed.
This will be a fun and engaging workshop to inspire participants to do a diversity audit on images, videos and other class materials that they use day-to-day in classrooms. An interactive learning exercise, and a short presentation will explore examples of how images and videos used in classroom presentations can promote diversity (racial, sexual, gender, ability) without necessarily being the subject of the course. Participants will have an opportunity to brainstorm ways they can use images, videos, literature excerpts, guest speakers and other resources in class to promote diversity, and to share their ideas with colleagues in the workshop.
