Global Awareness CTL: Engaging in Teaching that Reaches All Students

This is a past event.

Presented by Melissa Hawkins. UAB has an incredibly diverse student body profile, in both visible and invisible categories of difference. Because we want to create learning environments throughout campus in which all students have a chance to acquire content from our courses and to be successful, the significance of this diversity in how we choose to teach should be recognized. Fortunately, there are fairly simple techniques teachers can incorporate that will make their instruction more effective for all types of learners.

In this session, participants will review both common and less-considered areas of student diversity on UAB’s campus.  In addition, participants will review and discuss actions they can take to support great teaching in their classes—ideas that are not difficult to implement but will make a significant difference. 

*Lunch will be served at this event. Please let us know if you have any dietary restrictions or if your schedule changes and you are unable to attend.

Registration is required for in-person attendance only. Please do not register if you do not plan on attending in person. UAB faculty are always welcome to show up to CTL events without registering, but we ask that if food is being served, you wait until all registered participants have gotten their food before serving yourself.
