The Office for Diversity and Inclusion invites you to Dr. Maria Salazar's talk on "Humanizing Teaching and Teaching Evaluations in Higher Ed."
Her presentation will detail the components and practices of humanizing teaching in higher education classrooms and how these can be infused in faculty teaching evaluation as a lever for systemic change. This work is grounded in theories of Humanizing Pedagogy and Critical Race Theory and is shared through the lens of a Latina scholar, who was dehumanized throughout the U.S. P-20 educational system. The goals of the presentation are for participants to: (a) identify how they can enact concrete humanizing teaching strategies that foster diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), and (b) understand how faculty teaching evaluations can be a lever to promote DEI at a systems level.
This in-person event will be held in ODI commons on Thursday, October 6, from 1:00 - 2:00 PM. RSVP required.
