Culturally Responsive Teaching (CRT)

These connections help students develop higher-level academic skills, and see the relevance between what they learn at school and their lives. With this in mind, please describe an example of how you help others come to understand concepts from your field/discipline/industry to be relevant in their daily lives.

Inclusive teaching

Describes the range of approaches to teaching that consider the diverse needs and backgrounds of all students to create a learning environment where all students feel valued and where all students have equal access to learn.

  • Instructors develop supportive relationships with students and establish a culture of care in the classroom
  • Instructors establish a learning environment that decreases incivility and unproductive conflict
  • Student participation and engagement increases
  • Students are more likely to take intellectual risks, persist with difficult material and retain learning across contexts

Anti-Racism

Racism shows up in many places in academia: in curriculum, classroom practices, and institutional policies.

Decolonizing

When talking about decolonizing in academia, it is usually referring to the curriculum (the lessons and academic content taught) or classroom practices. Both curriculum and classroom practices in the U.S. have been shown to privilege white middle-class and upper-middle class students.

Decolonizing classroom practices might mean not grading on attendance or timeliness. In a remote setting, it might mean not requiring students to turn on their camera or dress in business casual for a presentation.

Trauma-Informed

Instructors meet students where they are, understanding that some students come in with past experiences that are traumatic. Instructors build trust with students, students are relaxed enough to learn, and mistakes are seen as informative and part of the learning process.

Career Objectives

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
