Office of Academic Innovation
What makes a curriculum inclusive, and what processes can we use to examine our own syllabi, assignments, and assessments to ensure that they are inclusive and equitable for all students? In this interactive remote workshop, we will practice auditing a curriculum together so that we might be able to see our own course materials with a lens toward equity and inclusion.
About the Facilitator
Jaime Wood, Program Manager for Educational Initiatives
Jaime has an MA in English education from Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado, and an MFA in creative writing, poetry from Eastern Washington University in Spokane, Washington. Her career in education began as a language arts and math teacher in an Expeditionary Learning Outward Bound middle school where she used service learning, adventure trips, and community-based curriculum to engage sixth and seventh graders. Since 2003, she has worked in universities and community colleges both in the classroom and as a faculty developer and assessment coordinator. She is fascinated by the relationship between learners and teachers and how these roles overlap. When she’s not reading about pedagogy, Jaime enjoys writing poetry and songs, camping on the coast, and exploring the unadvertised beauties of Portland.
