Instruction Committee Webinar: "A work in process: Cultivating inclusive classrooms"

Primary tabs

Tuesday, March 12, 2019 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

The CARLI Instruction Committee's theme for this year is "Inclusive Classroom: Cultivating Learning Environments for Students with Diverse Identities." Through a series of online events, the committee will offer opportunities to discuss how to make our libraries and our classrooms more inclusive.

"A work in process: Cultivating inclusive classrooms"


Northeastern Illinois University is the one of the most ethnically diverse universities in the country, but what does that mean in terms of inclusion in the classroom? In this webinar, three NEIU librarians will share their missteps, lessons learned, and overall experiences with library instruction and research consultations while working with a diverse student population. If you’re curious to learn how they’ve cultivated more inclusive learning environments, you won’t find a simple checklist, but you’ll join an honest conversation and hear about others’ processes.
