Conversation during the dean’s retreat surfaced tensions around implementing strategies for building an inclusive classroom, supporting productive team or group work and addressing oppressive behaviors. With the goal of helping you to gain a better understanding how you might shape your own pedagogical approach to build an inclusive classroom that fosters student learning and growth, Riley Caldwell-O’Keefe of the Center for Teaching and Learning will draw on Amherst-specific examples and the literature about inclusive and culturally responsive teaching to facilitate a discussion of these tensions. We want to hear what has worked for you, what others might try and where you are wanting to grow and need more support and ideas.
