Facilitator: Toula Kourgiantakis, Assistant Professor, Teaching Stream, Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work

Join U of T faculty graduates of the Association of College and University Educators (ACUE) Effective Teaching Practices course (ACUE-Certified Faculty) as they share insights from the 25 modules they completed over several months. They implemented, reimagined, and extended evidence-based teaching practices to support their teaching, learning and student success at U of T. This Series invites participants to hear from these instructors: their reflections upon what they have learned, and practical examples and tips informed by evidence-based strategies. Facilitators will engage in discussions on sharing these approaches into one’s current practice.

In this workshop, Professor Toula Kourgiantakis will discuss her ongoing learning on how to incorporate equity, diversity, inclusion, and accessibility (EDIA) in the classroom to have meaningful and transformative learning experiences. Professor Kourgiantakis will focus on three areas that have enhanced her teaching: 1) knowing oneself and how that is reflected in what we teach and how we teach, 2) building relationships with students and a sense of community in the classroom, and 3) incorporating EDIA in the course design and syllabus. Professor Kourgiantakis will give specific examples on how each area impacts creating more inclusive classroom space and more positive teaching and learning experiences.
