The Enacting Equity Series uses sections of the Enacting Equity Guidelines to direct professional development along four axes of inclusive teaching: self-reflection, introductory information, course content, and assessment and evaluation.

In each workshop, participants will reflect on how aspects of their teaching are shaped by various forms of inequity and apply inclusive teaching practices to address equity gaps.

There are four workshops for the Fall 2021 semester. Click on the toggles below to view the details for each workshop and register.
