Student Led – Indigenous Pedagogy Workshop (Sept 19, 2020)

Join the Native American Student Association (NASA) and the Teaching Innovations Office for a student-led workshop on incorporating Indigenous best practices into your teaching. The workshop will include history of Native nations in NC, student experiences, and introductions to Indigenous teaching practices.

This dialogue-style workshop will help you reflect on the needs of Indigenous students, UNCG’s location on Keyauwee and Saura land, and how you can better serve all students by incorporating multiple ways of knowing in the classroom.

DiversityEDU is an online module through Canvas that offers faculty and staff skills-based development in areas of equity and diversity. Using case scenarios and practical applications, DiversityEDU is a research-based resource for faculty and staff as UNCG continues to strive for inclusive excellence.

Participants have access to two module types: a faculty/staff module or an academic search committee module. Participants who complete either of the two-hour modules will receive a Certificate of Completion from the Office of the Provost.

Don’t miss this great opportunity and resource. Request access here.

Viewpoints of Student Inclusive Experiences (VOISES)

From students, for faculty: a panel of student experiences

Join us for a conversation about key UNCG student experiences in the classroom and beyond. VOISES panels provide a venue for faculty to hear the perspective of students from marginalized identity groups on campus. These moderated panels give faculty the chance to ask questions while reflecting on issues of equity, diversity, and inclusion at UNCG.

**Note, VOISES will be postponed until spring 2021, when we can gather again.
