    Sense of Belonging

     

    The Faculty Actively Fostering a Sense of Belonging Transformative Teaching Exchange, presented by Jennifer Whitley on Nov. 2, 2022, focused on faculty looking inward into how they can create a more inclusive learning environment. Faculty covered a holistic view of this topic, and utilized Dr. Tracie Addy’s keynote address and book, What Inclusive Instructors Do, as a framework as they shared their thoughts and ideas. By the end of the session, faculty had techniques to help them focus on the big question: How can we actively foster an inclusive class and sense of belonging, while also encouraging students to take ownership of their learning?
