Do I belong? Recognizing and managing impostorism

Schedule: Wednesday, September 29, 2021, 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Location: Taught Online

Impostor Phenomenon (IP) is commonly experienced by individuals in academia and is characterized as an intellectual feeling of phoniness that can undermine confidence in oneself. However, many students do not realize how common this phenomenon is. In this workshop, we will share some results from a campus-wide survey we recently conducted on the Impostor Phenomenon in undergraduate and graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, staff, and faculty members. We will also provide practical tips and resources for recognizing and managing feelings of impostorism. This workshop is targeted at GAs/TAs, but faculty and staff are welcome to join the dialogue.

This session will be taught using Blackboard Collaborate with a link to be sent out a day before the workshop starts.

Reaching ALL your students: Practices to make your content accessible

Schedule: Friday, October 08, 2021, 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM
Location: Taught Online

As an instructor you play an essential role in making course material accessible and in creating a climate of equity and inclusion. Many things can be done to address the needs of diverse learners, and in this workshop practical steps will be provided to help you make course content more accessible to a broader base of students. The presenters will contextualize the student experience to highlight the importance of embedding accessibility into your course design. Attendees will learn about such resources as screen readers, a form of assistive technology, and how to make documents more accessible for people who use this support. The workshop will also cover how to provide audio description of visual content and how it helps fill the gap for those who can’t see images. By describing visual elements, students who have low vision are better able to participate in the learning environment and have a richer experience.
