Event Description:

Application Form 2013-14

 For CU Boulder Teaching Assistants/Graduate Part-time Instructors

Working experience with diversity issues in higher education is essential to effective and appropriate classroom teaching and invaluable on the academic job market.

The Graduate Teacher Program (GTP) is hosting a free four-day interactive diversity training in July 2013. The training is designed to help CU Boulder graduate teachers (TAs and GPTIs) incorporate diversity and inclusion into their classroom environments regardless of discipline.

(Link to application)

Participation is limited to 25 registered participants and satisfies 16 workshop credits toward the GTP workshop requirement of the Certificate in College Teaching and/or the workshop or project portion of the Professional Development Certificate for Preparing Future Faculty. There is no fee for the training, only a required commitment to participate and complete all four sessions. Participants will be notified by June 15 regarding their acceptance. 

Topics covered will include:

  • A range of diversity topics presented by experts in their fields
  • Managing difficult conversations with students
  • Integrating multiple perspectives into arts, humanities, social science, and STEM classrooms
  • Creating and accessing materials in your field inclusive of different populations and multiple perspectives
  • Approaching classroom discussions and issues when the teacher and students are from dissimilar backgrounds
  • Creating teaching and learning objectives that reflect content representative of multiple perspectives and knowledge of students from diverse backgrounds
  • Reflection on teachers’ positionality and its impact in the classroom

 Methods used during the training include: expert content presentations, small group work, role-playing, written self-reflections, application of research to practice and personal project, exercises on understanding and incorporating multiple perspectives into one’s own practice.


Participants will reflect on their own relationship to diversity and how it informs their incorporation of diversity into the classroom. Participants will learn multiple perspectives from presenters and participants and share their own. Participants will work on a product of their own choice—a series of exercises or activities, strategies, assignments, lessons, a module, or a syllabus that incorporates diversity and inclusion. Attendees may also voluntarily contribute their insights to a research study throughout the training.
