Our Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) in TAing workshops enable UBC’s teaching assistants to enhance their skills and better support diverse learners.
Through the workshop, you will learn how to incorporate EDI into the classroom as a way to enhance:
- students’ sense of belonging;
- their engagement with content and assessment;
- the skills needed to work across differences.
Guided by Rachael E. Sullivan, PhD, an equity facilitator with the UBC Equity & Inclusion Office, participants will benefit from a variety of interactive discussions, activities, and accompanying resources.
These sessions are presented by Rachael E.
