The Teaching Center, along with the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, will be piloting Ally in Blackboard this coming fall 2019 term. Ally provides instructors with guidance on how to correct accessibility issues with course content, which means learning materials will work better with assistive technologies for students with disabilities as well as on mobile phones and tablets. Instructors interested in piloting Ally in Blackboard this fall can visit our website to learn more.
Join us on June 12 in Posvar Hall for "Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Teaching and Learning," the final event of the Provost’s Diversity Institute for Faculty Development. Attendees will explore how to approach diversity, equity, and inclusion during the coming academic year. Faculty who were members of the Extended Diversity community in 2018-19 will offer short presentations on their work. Following the presentations will be a book giveaway as well as a poster session where participants can talk one-on-one with the presenters. Please register online to attend.
The Teaching Center will begin offering a series of remote office hours starting Sunday, March 15. Sessions will be structured as either open topic or broad topic Q&A discussions and delivered remotely via Zoom. Teaching consultants and educational technologists will be available to answer instructors’ questions on a first-come, first-served basis. Check out our schedule for Remote Office Hours and Virtual Workshops starting Sunday, March 15.
