Winter Enrichment Course
COURSE DATE: November 22, 2020 – January 16, 2021
Successful teaching today requires attention to the diverse needs of our students. They’re diverse is so many respects – culturally, generationally, in their backgrounds, in their abilities, in their identity.
Such diversity brings different learning styles and needs. It’s essential to meet your students where they are most comfortable and where they learn best!
Teaching Specific Student Populations provides eye-opening perspectives and practical solutions to make learning more impactful and environments more respectful and inclusive. This 10-hour course looks at the unique challenges of educating student groups including:
- Generation Z: How do you keep learning relevant for a digital generation? What are their weaknesses? Their strengths? Their values? What motivates them to learn?
- Gender-variant students: How can you stay abreast of changing pronouns and other terminology? How do you navigate issues of gender identity versus sexual identity? What if you make mistakes? What are the Title IX implications for your classroom environment?
- Neurodiverse students: How can you create an engaging experience for students of all abilities? What are the effective ways to manage social anxiety and cognition? What are the impacts of movement and visual tools on learning? What is the value of predictability?
- Culturally diverse students: How do cultural differences impact teacher-student relations … classroom participation … interpersonal dynamics … integrity and ethics?
- Professional-track students: How do you “teach” professionalism? What are the methods for cultivating good communication skills, etiquette, personal presentation, and other aspects of professional behavior? And how do you measure it?
Individuals can take the course at their own pace and access it 24/7 from virtually any device. Learning communities can work through the program together as part of departmental or institution-wide faculty development initiatives.
