LGBTQIA+ Inclusion in Course Content and Interactions

June 30, 2021 - 1:30pm to 3:00pm

Students' ideas and expectations about higher education students have been shaped by their worldviews, participation in social systems, and connections with instructors and fellow students at Pitt and beyond. The breadth and depth of the student experience - whether it's virtual or in-person - may affect how they interpret and respond to intellectual challenges posed by new material or interactions with their peers.

This workshop invites participants to practice proactive ways to address and mitigate resistance to LGBTQIA+ topics in the classroom. Successful integration of LGBTQIA+ topics into your classroom requires intentional course content design and learning experiences to cultivate an environment that invites exploration of these topics.

We recommend that participants review the recordings of Trans Inclusivity in the Classroom or Supporting Transgender and Nonbinary Students before attending this session. We ask participants to bring a syllabus to revise at the workshop.
