Affinity Groups

Our conference will set aside time in the morning for meetings of affinity groups. These will be settings for like-minded individuals to gather, share stories, and establish a shared vision for how they might engage with the conference. Our hope is that these affinity groups allow attendees to feel affirmed and heard as they join discussions about teaching and learning. We will reserve space for folks to gather in conversation around the following:

  • Educators of Color. How has my experience as a person of color shaped my journey at UC Berkeley? How does my experience as a student of color inform how I practice inclusive and equitable approaches to teaching?

  • Teaching and Technology. How do you use technology to support your inclusive teaching? In what ways have technological advancements, like artificial intelligence, challenged you to think differently about teaching and technology?

  • Graduate Student Learning. Do you practice inclusive and equitable teaching strategies differently when teaching graduate students or across degree programs (e.g., PhD, MA, etc.)? What are emerging challenges and strategies for supporting graduate student learning following the events of COVID, the UAW strike, and the narrowing faculty job market?
