LEARN Center

Supporting Equitable Teaching

In the summer of 2022, the LEARN Center sponsored an opportunity for UW-Whitewater instructors to focus on small course redesigns to implement new or additional equitable practices in their courses during the 2022-23 academic year. 

Examples of possible projects included, but were not limited to, the following: 

  • Techniques to provide clear expectations on the first day and beyond
  • Reviewing cultural references and examples
  • Establishing fair grading policies through the use of robust rubrics and other tools
  • Creating an inclusive syllabus
  • Plans to support students’ mental health challenges

Additional examples and resources can be found here and here

The posters on this page were produced by the recipients of this funding opportunity and were presented at the Fall Forum during the 2022 Welcome Week events.
