We propose a workshop to share and discuss the activities of the College of Arts & Letters Inclusive Pedagogy Fellows Program from AY 2022-2023. The CAL Inclusive Pedagogy Fellows (IPF) Program provides a proactive collaborative space for a cohort of educators seeking to design, establish, and maintain intersectional and inclusive learning environments in their teaching and curriculum development activities. Ten Fellows from 3 units across CAL came together to explore and engage with inclusive pedagogies from a variety of perspectives and disciplinary approaches, and to focus on different ways of knowing, trauma-informed, translingual, and transcultural pedagogies, and intersectionality. Aligning with the conference focus on community, conversation and classroom experiences, we propose a roundtable session for Fellows to reflect on their experience in the program, share their take-aways on facilitating inclusive practices in the classroom, and discuss concrete strategies for creating more inclusive learning environments. We envision this workshop as an interactive conversation about what the Fellows learned, how they applied new knowledge and skills, and where they want to go next in their inclusive pedagogy practices. Participants are invited to engage with the workshop participants and enhance the strategies Fellows plan to implement. The roundtable will consist of Fellows from the program. Post-presentation outcomes for participants include leaving the session with some initial first steps and strategies for implementing inclusive practices. Using the roundtable format, we aim to facilitate interactive discussion across disciplines.
