Advancing Inclusion, Internationalization, Diversity, & Equity Teaching & Learning Collaborative (AIIDE TLC)

The principal goal of the AIIDE TLC is to create spaces for interdisciplinary discussion and practical activities that will expand faculty participants' application of inclusion, internationalization, diversity, and equity practices in their teaching and learning environments.

AIIDE TLC Program objectives are:

Define diversity, equity, inclusion and internationalization

Actively apply these concepts in your teaching and learning practice

Recognize personal biases (both conscious and unconscious) that might affect participants’ teaching

Select and make use of intentional strategies aimed at removing bias in the learning environment

Start drafting teaching practices for the application of the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) in your learning environment

Locate and interact with resources at Case Western Reserve University that would support your evolving DEII practices in teaching and research

Write an intentional strategy for sharing these resources with others in their department

The AIIDE TLC is open to all teaching faculty at CWRU as a 14-week seminar program. Meetings will take place weekly on Thursdays from 12:45pm - 2:00pm (except for Spring Break). Faculty participants should allow approximately four hours per week for readings, journal reflections, and artifact development. Participation in this interdisciplinary collaborative requires a commitment to engage with colleagues for all 14 weekly seminars. Faculty who successfully complete the AIIDE TLC will receive a $2,000 grant for academic purposes.
