As educators, we are called to grapple with the question of how to foster dynamic and engaging discussions while nurturing accountable spaces. This session will unpack how to help create community for meaningful discussions from the very first day of class and/or tutorials. Specifically, we will draw the connection between equitable teaching practices and inclusive classroom communities. Questions we will explore together include: How can we create and share space during difficult conversations? How can we diversify facilitation strategies? What are co-created community guidelines and how can we use them throughout a course?
