Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) Training in the Classroom - March 20 and 21, 2024, 11 am - 3 pm

JEDI in the Classroom: How create an inclusive and brave classroom environment

When: Wednesday, March 20th, 12:53pm
until Friday, March 22nd, 12:53pm

In preparation for current and future teaching roles, this workshop series recognizes the importance of diversity and inclusion in teaching effectiveness. To have an equitable teaching environment for all students, instructors must commit to being anti-oppressive educators and actively combat power and privilege (e.g., racism, sexism, classism, etc.) in their classrooms. This workshop series invites any JHU affliate with instructional responsbilities to examine their intersectional identities, biases, assumptions, values, and expectations of students and center students of color and other marginalized groups in course design, pedagogy, and course content. Participants will develop concrete strategies on how to develop an inclusive teaching environment and how to function as an advocate in both subject matter and teaching methods. 

Facilitator: Ashley Cureton, PhD, Assistant Professor of Social Work, School of Social Work, and Assistant Professor of Educational Studies, Marsal Family School of Education

Those who attend the full two days will receive a certificate of completion.
