Change Leadership for Inclusive Teaching and Learning

July 20, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm CDT

This 10-week synchronous online course aims to strengthen undergraduate STEM education by preparing graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, and early career-faculty to be change agents in their roles in higher education. Through participation in this course, participants will be equipped with the knowledge and skills to inspire and influence others, analyze their institution’s structure and become agents of change. By the end of this course, participants will:

  • Develop a professional identity as a Change Agent
  • Examine higher education institutions as complex organizations, as well as analyzing leadership approaches and change theories
  • Develop strategies, skills, and abilities appropriate for serving as a Change Agent while holding a position as an early-career faculty member
