Teaching for Equity

Teaching and Leading for Equity

The Office for Faculty Advancement is pleased to offer the new Teaching and Leading for Equity four-part workshop series. The program is designed to support faculty who aim to grow their skills in navigating issues of racism and equity in their classrooms and curriculum, teaching across lines of race, class and gender with diverse groups of students, and building strong learning communities with their students and colleagues.

This workshop is offered by Teach.Equity.Now. (T.E.N.), a collaboration between the Pauli Murray Center, HOPE Education Group and OAK Consulting with Krista Robinson-Lyles and Tema Okun as cofacilitators.

The program is ideal for faculty who are interested in this topic but have not yet engaged in training. The Fall 2021 cohort met on October 11, 18, 25 and November 1. The Spring 2022 cohort will meet on Tuesdays from 9:00-11:30 a.m. on February 1, 8, 15 and 22. Please contact Jennifer Goins to register. Faculty participation will be on a first come, first served basis.

Teaching for Equity Fellows

The Teaching for Equity Fellows program is a year-long series of workshops that give faculty tools to better engage all students in our classrooms, labs and learning spaces. The workshops are specifically designed to address a number of teaching and mentoring topics that may arise around race and identity. Faculty fellows gain specific skills and strategies to create a culture that improves learning for all our students. The Duke Human Rights Center at the Franklin Humanities Institute collaborated with Hope Education Group and OAK Consulting to create the program in 2015, and has built a network of over 200 alumni fellows from 10 cohorts across Duke.

The Office for Faculty Advancement sponsored the participation of 25 faculty in the 2021-2022 cohort. They come from the Trinity College of Arts & Sciences, Sanford School of Public Policy, Divinity School, Nicholas School of the Environment, Pratt School of Engineering, Center for Documentary Studies, Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions, and Duke University Libraries.

After the 2021-2022 academic year, the Teaching for Equity Fellows program will be offered through Teach.Equity.Now, which will be hosted by the Pauli Murray Center. Anyone from Duke is welcome to reach out directly to the Pauli Murray Center or contact facilitators Krista Robinson-Lyles and Tema Okun.
