DC launches new learning series for employees on equity, diversity and inclusion

Durham College (DC) is launching a new learning series for employees as part of ongoing work towards ensuring an equitable post-secondary experience for all students.

Developed jointly by DC’s Office of Student Diversity, Inclusion and Transitions and its Centre for Academic and Faculty Enrichment, the series is titled Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in Pedagogy and Practice and comprises five modules:

  • Power, Privilege and Bias
  • Navigating Difficult Conversations
  • Inclusive and Responsive Teaching
  • Universal Design for Learning (UDL)
  • Conversations in Decolonization

DC recognizes the rich diversity of all students and appreciates the need to ensure this diversity is welcomed and reflected in all teaching and learning practices. The modules reinforce DC’s values of diversity, inclusion, and respect, and were created to introduce college employees to the concepts of inclusion and cultural intelligence so that all students can be equitably supported.
