The Horizon 2017 report encourages faculties at colleges and universities to adopt effective instructional strategies that their K- 12 colleagues have adopted and used. A portion of these approaches include culturally- relevant and culturally- responsive teaching. Although effective instructors incorporate these practices in multiple formats and within diverse contexts, participating faculty members and graduate teaching assistants must consider behaviors and issues to which they might be applied. In this interactive workshop, the presenter will engage participants in a “lived experience” that will serve as a basis for reflection. There will be multiple opportunities for discussions and questions throughout and at the end of the presentation.


This workshop is an elective workshop for the Teaching Towards Inclusive Excellence (TTIE) certificate of completion. In order to qualify for the certificate of completion, participants must attend the Inclusive Excellence at USC workshop and seven (7) electives. Participants will have 3 academic semesters (not including summer semester) to complete the Teaching Towards Inclusive Excellence (TTIE) certificate of completion.
