In addition to providing important university policies and acting as a reference guide for course logistics and requirements, the syllabus is likely one of the first places where students will begin to become acquainted with you and your course. As such, it can begin to set a positive, inclusive tone for the semester ahead. In this virtual conversation, we will discuss aspects of the syllabus that can help demonstrate your commitment to an inclusive learning environment where all students have the opportunity to feel like they belong.
Registration for these conversations is open to anyone currently teaching or who is currently an assistant in instruction in a for-credit course at WashU. Prior registration is required, and participant limits are set at 20 to ensure that all will have the chance to discuss their ideas and concerns. Please contact Meg Gregory at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
