Intercultural Pedagogy Community of Practice

Intercultural Pedagogy Community of Practice (ICPCP)

Facilitated by: Dr. Paula J Pedersen and Dr. Helen Mongan-Rallis

For those of you who wonder: “What does a culturally inclusive classroom look like? What does my teaching have to do with this?”If you are interested in joining a community of practice to explore these questions over the course of a semester, this community of practice is for you!

ALL disciplines are welcome!! Click the link To Register for the next ICPCP cohort!

We begin each semester the week before classes with a half day, including lunch, of creating our community and shared expectations.  We then meet for 2 hours bi-monthly for ongoing sharing, tips, and support. Participants are asked to be available for all sessions. Each participant will be asked to either have a current course they are working with throughout the semester OR a course they are planning for a future term.
