Teaching & Learning in the Diverse Classroom

Teaching & Learning in the Diverse Classroom is a four-week, self-paced online course for anyone with teaching responsibilities at Cornell, at any level of diversity expertise. Modules explore strategies for inclusive course design, social identity and self-reflection, and pedagogical practices that effectively support student engagement and belongingness across difference.

Let’s Get Real: Conversations about Diversity and Teaching

Through a facilitated dialogue over lunch, participants in Let's Get Real: Conversations about Diversity and Teaching reflect on group dynamics in teaching and learning. How do our own and students’ social identities and lived experiences come into play in the learning environment? How do our cultural world views and personal experiences shape what we notice and fail to notice? These workshops focus on self-reflection, knowledge-building, and preparing for teaching at Cornell. Specific topics change each semester.

Teaching & Learning Reading Group

What does research tell us about which teaching practices work best for student learning? How do people conduct education research? Please join us for bi-weekly discussions about teaching and education research throughout the school-year. The Teaching and Learning Reading Group is open to faculty, staff and grad students. Feel free to join in at any point during the semester.

Cornell Online Learning Community

The Cornell Online Learning Community helps bring blended and online learning colleagues together to share and learn about designing and delivering online courses, increasing awareness, and sharing knowledge and resources.

Cornell Teaching Partnership Program

The Cornell Teaching Partnership Program (CTPP) pairs a new faculty member with a tenured faculty member to meet periodically throughout the year to engage in conversations about teaching, participate in classroom observations, and foster a more stimulating and satisfying teaching experience.
