This conversation will be a starting place for thinking through how to implement inclusive pedagogy and learner-centered practices into your syllabus. We will discuss strategies for producing a student-centered syllabus; as well as, the importance of establishing clear expectations and goals, using transparent teaching methods, and building rapport and community in your class.

*About CELT's Conversations on Teaching Inclusively*
This series provides an opportunity for faculty, staff and graduate students (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
