Ethical Dilemmas in Inclusive Teaching: Difficult Dynamics in the Lab

December 5, 2022 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm CST

Cases that showcase inclusive teaching dilemmas at the university offer the opportunity for many to develop and test their own ways of understanding how they respond to dilemmas in their teaching. In this interactive workshop, come together with fellow future faculty to discuss some problematic group dynamics and cultural differences playing out in a lab course at a large research university. Participants will brainstorm possible solutions and challenge assumptions about potential paths forward that they can bring to their current and future institutions. All are welcome.
