The Institute aims to enhance faculty knowledge of issues around diversity, power, and pedagogies that effectively and intentionally engage difference and include all learners. In addition, it will provide time and resources for faculty to create a useful classroom product.

This Institute follows three Engaging Difference Teaching and Learning Conversations (TLCs) throughout the spring semester and is a part of the UD Summer Faculty Institute. Participants will attend shared events such as keynote addresses and meals with all faculty. They also will attend Institute-specific sessions that will delve into specific issues of diversity, an introduction to theories of learning and inclusion, and provide opportunities to plan and practice inclusive and equitable planning, teaching, and assessment techniques. Participants will also will enjoy an exclusive working session with keynote speaker, Dr. Shaun Harper.
