Description

The Center for Social Equity and Inclusion’s Teaching and Learning Lab workshops support faculty professional development and pedagogical innovation. Our schedule provides regular opportunity for the sharing and dissemination of practices aimed at creating inclusive and engaged classroom environments and supporting faculty in effectively addressing the needs of our students. We also offer a number of informational sessions on research support and funding opportunities at RISD. Largely interactive and collaborative, our workshops are RISD-centered, faculty led and focused, and aim to build an archive of resources for faculty support in the classroom. Our mission is to address and accommodate faculty needs, so please let us know of any requests or feedback at sei@risd.edu.
