This program will provide an opportunity for faculty and staff (who have a teaching role) to dialogue about teaching inclusively at Iowa State University. The intent of these conversations will be to help build a stronger teaching community, create collaborative partnerships, and develop effective teaching practices for meeting the diverse needs of our students. Each month we will choose a topic based on input from our teaching community.

Sample topics include:
* Identity and positionality; how it affects your teaching
* Inclusive projects and study groups
* Incorporating diversity issues more deeply into the curriculum
* Working effectively with different learning styles

Choose to attend one or all the following conversations on the following Thursdays from 4 - 5:00 p.m. in 2030 Morrill Hall:
