Workshops and Courses for Educators

Designed as a flexible learning space, the teaching lab allows us to introduce and model various teaching methods and allows educators to experiment with new instructional tools and approaches that engage and support learners.

Our workshops and courses are open to all UC San Diego educators, except where noted in the descriptions.

Creating an Inclusive Classroom 

Faculty from the CAMSEE community, in collaboration with the Teaching + Learning Commons, the Office of the VC for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, and the UC San Diego Campus Community Centers invite you to participate in a hands-on workshop on creating an inclusive classroom.

The workshop will support faculty and educators in learning about tangible strategies to build inclusive classroom learning environments, sustainable practices to create welcoming educational communities, and learner-centered syllabi that address the diverse needs of our students. These inclusive teaching practices will have a large impact on individual students’ learning experiences in our courses.

Open to faculty and graduate students. Open to postdocs on a space-available basis.
