The Small Group Discussions are designed to offer participants of the TiGDC Certificate Program opportunities to meet and talk with facilitators and fellow participants. Aside from establishing broad focus areas, these small group discussions are largely unstructured. You can bring questions, ideas, insights related to the focus area from your own experiences and/or from your participation in the various components of the certificate (readings, webinars, reflections, etc).
Group Discussion (A) - Community Building: This session provides an informal, fun and friendly chance to get to know a few of your fellow TiGDC colleagues. We believe that teaching shouldn’t happen in isolation, that we should build community among us in support of each other in our teaching and our own learning. We will also invite conversation about ways we can intentionally and effectively build a sense of community in our classes.
Note: Only participants of the Teaching in Globally Diverse Classes Certificate Program may enroll in the Small Group Discussion sections.
