Creating Equitable Classrooms (Roundtable)

June 11, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


June 11, 2020
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Jasjit Sangha, Learning Strategist, Academic Success Centre
David Roberts, Assistant Professor, Teaching Stream, Geography & Planning
Yaseen Ali, Learning Strategist, Academic Success Centre

In this virtual roundtable session, we will be hosting a broad discussion on equity issues and online teaching. We are hoping to recreate the informal, kitchen table style conversations we have in person, through small group and large group activities. The topic for this month will be on how to engage international students in online learning and discussions, with guest presenter Yaseen Ali, Learning Strategist from Academic Success.

These informal sessions will offer faculty an opportunity to engage in small group learning about how to create equitable classrooms through:

  • Exploring why they may feel hesitant to bring an equity lens to their curriculum
  • Reflection on their teaching practices and their own social positionality
  • Sharing ideas for how to introduce a topic into their curriculum through an equity lens
  • Workshopping ideas for new assignments together
  • Listening to the perspectives of guest speakers
