We are excited to announce the first meeting of the FHS Inclusive Teaching Community of Practice (CoP)
The goal of the CoP is to provide FHS instructors with a space to share experiences, exchange resources, and learn more about instructional strategies for inclusive teaching in academic and clinical learning environments. The CoP also aims to create a series of recommended actionable items to share back with the Faculty of Health Sciences to improve policies and increase supports for inclusive teaching within the Faculty.
This meeting will focus on “Getting to Know Your Learners” – exploring methods for building rapport with students and gathering information about supporting their learning.
The proposed meeting agenda is:
9:30-9:50AM: Welcome and Overview of Topic
9:50-10:50AM: Group Discussion and Sharing of Experiences
10:50-11:00AM: Remaining Questions and Session Wrap Up
Discussion and pre-session preparation will be circulated to those who register via the EventBrite Link

Platform: Microsoft Teams (details provided upon registration)
Audience: Faculty, teaching assistants, and postdoctoral fellows in the Faculty of Health Sciences. Attendees should either currently, or previously, have a teaching role within the Faculty of Health Sciences or have an interest in teaching.
