The Leadership Institute of the IU Bloomington Faculty Academy on Excellence in Teaching (FACET) invites all full-time faculty and associate instructors to engage in an interdisciplinary discussion about teaching and learning strategies that promote diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice among students. As a basis for this discussion, we invite faculty members, individually or in teams, to submit poster proposals that describe course-related DEIJ activities, changes, or improvements.
The Equity Summit will be held on October 13, 2023 on the IU Bloomington campus. Our hope is that the summit can inspire and teach our colleagues how to incorporate diversity, equity, inclusion, and diversity elements into their courses. Participation in this event will also help FACET create future programming centered on DEIJ initiatives.
Preference will be given to proposals that provide artifacts or other evidence of teaching and learning and that may be generalizable to various teaching situations. These artifacts could include teaching materials, slides, anonymized student work, videos of students commenting, etc. Those who have DEIJ elements that would work better as a demonstration can opt to participate in a microteaching session during the summit. We will be reviewing proposals as they come in over the summer. Faculty from any FACET-affliated campus are welcome to submit by August 11, 2023 by 5:00 pm EST.
