Action Allyship in the Classroom

What does it mean to be an ally to our racially and ethnically minoritized students, trans and non-binary students, LGBTQ students, and students at multiple intersections of these categories? With the rise in students who identify as gender non-binary or transgender, as well as more vocal discussions by racially and ethnically minoritized people of what it means to be actively antiracist, it is imperative that we educate ourselves on how to be an ally. Being an ally means more than tolerance or acceptance; it means actively changing our policies and even the language we use in the classroom to make learning more equitable for all students. It means following the lead of BIPOC and LGBTQ+ activists, scholars, and students in making change. This day-long workshop will focus on how to enact allyship in the classroom.

Extreme Makeover - Canvas Edition

Have you ever looked at your Canvas course and noticed it was a bit bland?  This 3-part series of workshops will help you bring your Canvas pages from drab to FAB by adding visual interest and cohesion that will "Wow" your students.  Participants will work to incorporate images, learn techniques for adding color and practice adding interactive elements that will help students maintain interest in what they're reading.  Seats will be available both in-person and online.  Note: If joining virtually, we strongly recommend a dual-monitor setup.

Sessions Include:

  • Working with Images (Tuesday, August 23rd  1:00 - 2:30 PM)
  • Page Design and Layout (Wednesday, August 24th 1:00 - 2:30 PM)
