Blazer Core Teaching: Educational Access, Wellness, and Well-being in the Classroom

This is a past event.

Presented in the UAB Center for Teaching and Learning for UAB faculty by Chris Minnix, Ph.D.

This workshop explores pedagogical practices that promote student access and equity in an effort to strengthen student well-being and belonging in the university. Drawing on UAB’s signing of the Okanagan Charter, making UAB the nation’s first official Health Promoting University, the workshop examines how access-oriented pedagogical practices play a role in creating a culture of well-being in the classroom. Key topics discussed will be strategies for recognizing educational inequities among incoming students, research-based practices for supporting educational access and equity, and the role of pedagogy in promoting a culture of student well-being.
