Workshop on "Scenarios for Classroom Inclusion at Agnes"


Thursday May 10: 9 AM - 2 PM
This workshop focuses on our experiences creating classrooms that support the diverse student population at Agnes Scott.  The goal is to brainstorm and workshop challenging scenarios that we have experienced - or can imagine - and then identify relevant offices, resources, and best practices.  Some of these scenarios will then be used as "case studies" in New Faculty Orientation.  What do you want your new colleagues to think about so that they can best teach all of our Scotties?   You are encouraged to submit scenarios, whether or not you are able to attend this workshop.  The scenarios will be passed on anonymously to workshop participants.  The focus is on helping our new colleagues think about situations they may encounter so that they can identify resources before the start of the academic year and plan their syllabus/classroom policies.  You do not need to provide "solutions" to the scenario.
