Description:

Our guest for episode 41 of the Lecture Breakers podcast is Dr. Chavella Pittman. She’s a Sociology Professor and founder of Effective and Efficient Faculty where she offers workshops, coaching, and consultation services focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion in higher education.

In this episode, Chavella and I discuss how to create a learning environment in which our most vulnerable and marginalized students and faculty are able to participate and benefit fully in the learning and teaching experience.

She shares the 6 S's of inclusive teaching which are the foundational practices that must be in place to do this work.  This episode is also a little different than previous episodes because I ask the questions you submitted through email or social media. 

 

Memorable Quotes:

  • "When diversity, inclusion, and equity exist in a classroom, it means that the classroom is a space in which our most vulnerable and marginalized students and faculty are able to participate and benefit fully in the learning and teaching experience."

  • "Well-intentioned people are afraid of getting it wrong so they get stuck in inaction."

  • "You have to  make it clear what types of interactions lead to success in your classroom."

  • "This work requires expertise and investment."
