Pratt’s Center for Teaching and Learning (https://commons.pratt.edu/ctl/), in collaboration with Daniel Lim Consulting (https://dlimconsulting.com/), announces a new faculty workshop series this Fall 2019 semester around culturally responsive teaching practices. All workshops are co-facilitated by Daniel Lim and Judit Török.
Participants in the Culturally Responsive Pedagogies workshops will learn:

- Culturally appropriate terminology to refer to people of different social and identity groups;
- How to create productive learning environments for students that come from different educational systems/cultures, including international students;
- Different approaches to inclusive syllabus design;
- Strategies for being appropriately responsive to students from different racial, cultural, gender, sexual and ability backgrounds.
Faculty participants will learn currently accepted terminology for referring to people of different social and identity groups. They will learn specific pedagogical approaches to addressing classroom/studio interactions defined by racial, cultural, gender, and other forms of difference.This workshop is standardized, pre-scheduled, and open to all faculty members across campus. Faculty participants will work with faculty peers from other departments and programs, and learn generalized strategies applicable to all disciplines and learning environments.
