No-Fuss Book Club: Inclusive Teaching

Our No-Fuss Book Club in Fall 2023 turns attention to Inclusive Teaching: Strategies for Promoting Equity in the College Classroom. The authors of this book, UNC-Chapel Hill professors Kelly A. Hogan and Viji Sathy, were the keynote presenters at the Inclusive Pedagogy and Classroom Practices retreat held at Washington College in May. We have chosen their book to revisit and to expand upon some of the fruitful discussion of principles and practices initiated in May. In the tradition of “no-fuss book club,” we invite you to join the discussions whether you have read all, part, or none of the book: bring ideas and responses generated from the book and/or from other places you have been thinking about inclusive pedagogy. No tests or pop quizzes, just good conversation and a free lunch.

Discussions will be held in the Hodson Dining Hall. At the check-in counter, indicate that you are here for the Cromwell CTL event; once you get your food, please join the discussion in the upstairs loft area.

Session 1: Wednesday, September 13: 11.45 am – 12.45 pm [Chapters 1-2: inclusive mind-set and structure] 

Session 2: Tuesday, October 10: 11.45 am – 12.45 pm [Chapters 3-4: designing and launching your course]

Session 3: Tuesday, November 14: 11.45 am – 12.45 pm [Chapters 5-6: inclusive interactions inside and outside the classroom]

Session 4: Monday, December 11: 4.30 pm – 5.30 pm. A live, virtual Q&A session with the authors, Drs. Hogan and Sathy.

Print copies of the book might still be available for free; check with Dr. Alisha Knight, Associate Provost of Diversity and Inclusion. An electronic copy of the book can be accessed through Miller Library. And you can read an overview of their approach to inclusive teaching in this advice guide they published with the Chronicle of Higher Ed, “How to Make Your Teaching More Inclusive.” And here is a faculty guide to the book, including chapter summaries, provided by the authors.
