Teaching Development Day

Diversity and Inclusion in Queen’s Learning Environments

Wednesday, September 6, 2017, 9:00am - 4:00pm

This will be a day to acknowledge diversity, in all its forms and work to create inclusive learning environments that respect all participants – teachers and learners alike. Our Opening Plenary will once again feature Branch Out Theatre who will provide a highly engaging, thought-provoking experience of participatory theatre in an original forum theatre play, adapted to directly highlight this year’s TD Day themes.

TD Day will bring together students, faculty, and other teaching staff from across disciplines to collaborate and build strong, inclusive communities of teaching and learning at Queen’s. The day will be filled with interactive sessions aimed to equip participants with new teaching-related skills and perspectives. To maximize the sharing of strategies and best practices, a resource fair/poster session will be held during the lunch hour.
