Diversity, Inclusion, Access and Equity: Strategies for Incorporating Diverse Approaches and Themes
Wednesday, September 2, 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.
Hilton, Union Square 13
This short course (or roundtable) will provide professional development and strategies for incorporating diversity, inclusivity and access related themes and pedagogical elements into one’s teaching and research in order to address 21st century political science questions. Presenters will provide attendees with interactive resources, examples, and best practices. The roundtable/short course will be especially relevant for those whose teaching and research specialties address topics of race/ethnicity, gender, equity, LGBT politics, social justice, disability rights, and accessibility or those who are interested in learning innovative strategies for incorporating diversity, inclusiveness, and access related themes and approaches into their teaching and scholarship. Content and planned discussions will also provide strategies and recommendations for sharing these approaches and replicating featured models with departmental colleagues and students through assessment, curriculum/course design, and research methods courses. Participants will work together to develop a diversity/inclusion course module and will have an opportunity to workshop their own ideas with the group. This short course would be a continuation of previous professional development roundtables that were convened in response to the Task Force on Political Science in the 21st century.
