This faculty event is pre-recorded, link included in the Gmail invitation.

Join us in part 3 of a 3 part online faculty development series: Mindful Language for Inclusive Teaching.

The words we use while introducing a topic, demonstrating a skill, giving feedback, or conversing with a student (or colleague) have the power to either open hearts and minds or close them. Practice and play with phrases and words that are inclusive, welcoming, idea-sparking, and encouraging.
