Responding to -isms in the Classroom
Have you ever been in a class discussion when a student said something biased, but you were not sure how to respond as the instructor? This session incorporates research related to the bystander effect, microaggressions, and perceptions of bias in college classrooms.
Following the session, participants will be able to:
- apply techniques to communicate effectively in challenging situations,
- facilitate educational conversations in response to comments/actions that are racist, homophobic, transphobic, ableist, etc.,
- avoid eliciting a defensive reaction from the student who has (perhaps unintentionally) caused harm through their biased remarks.
Presenter: Lena Tenney, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Officer, Ohio State College of Pharmacy
Foundations of Inclusive Teaching
What is inclusive teaching and why does it matter? This session explores foundational principles for teaching inclusivity through the lens of Universal Design for Learning (UDL). Participants will contrast the concept of non-performativity to effective practices offered by UDL. They will also discuss equity in the classroom, student identity and strategies in order to cultivate a welcome learning environment. Participants will:
Consider non-performativity as a barrier to inclusive teaching
Review UDL as a framework for applying inclusive teaching strategies
Make decisions about best practices for inclusivity in own course

Calling In Workshop
What do we do when a student makes an uncomfortable or even outright racist/sexist/etc. remark? How do we confront microaggressions in class? Rather than 'calling out' students who create discomfort in the classroom, this workshop focuses on how to generatively call them 'in,' and turn difficult moments into teachable ones.
Instructional Redesign Workshop: Assessing Instruction
The measurement of student learning provides useful feedback to instructors about the extent to which students meet course- or module-level outcomes. When instructional strategies are redesigned to promote student learning or enhance the student experience, assessment supports reflective teaching and development of a rationale for teaching practices. This workshop will introduce participants to methods for measuring the effectiveness of instructional redesign and provide the opportunity for considering, developing, or refining IR assessment.
