Inclusive Teaching Faculty Learning Community

Program Description 

The Inclusive Teaching Faculty Learning Community (ITFLC) is a year-long program that explores best practices for teaching for students of many different identities.  One of the goals of this program is to increase awareness of how some teaching and assessment styles favor the identities, experiences and backgrounds of some students more than those of others. The ITFLC faculty participants actively implement inclusive teaching pedagogy in the revision of an existing course or the design of a new course. This program prepares faculty to be able to serve as leaders in inclusive teaching within their academic units and the university community.

 

2020-2021 Cohort 

The ITFLC program is offered through the CTL in collaboration with the Division of Diversity Equity and Inclusion, and sessions were facilitated by the CTL and Kent State faculty and staff with expertise in various topic areas. This is a multi-disciplinary program inclusive of faculty from several campuses.
