Grad8200, Section 2: Topics in Higher Education – Multicultural Inclusive Learning & Teaching
Fall 2016

Multicultural Inclusive Learning and Teaching (MILT) is a one-credit open online participatory seminar (OOPS) designed for current and future higher education teachers – across disciplines, crossing geographic, cultural and personal borders. Offered online, this course will allow higher education professionals to gather virtually to learn, share and develop strategies for cultivating learning spaces and teaching practices that support the broad range of learners enrolled in our colleges, programs and courses.

Together we will re-examine and expand ideas about what we teach, about how we attend to who is in the classroom, about when we address tensions/conflicts, about where to be transparent, and about why all this matters. More information
