Posted: October 25, 2017

The Academic Innovation Mini-Fund (AIM) program fosters faculty and staff leadership and innovation in areas that forward the University’s mission and goals. The program convenes interdisciplinary groups who, over several meetings, work on individual projects while benefiting from discussions with their colleagues and resources offered by them and by OAI.

Participants in the Inclusive Curriculum and Pedagogy cohort will develop or revise a course or program offering with the goal of creating a more inclusive, culturally-relevant approach to curriculum and pedagogy.  This will include syllabus/course development that represents diverse perspectives, inclusion of teaching methods that support multiple student backgrounds and abilities, reflects personal awareness of the impacts of one’s bias and identity on curriculum and pedagogy, and promotes equity and academic success for all students.

Proposals for the Inclusive Curriculum and Pedagogy AIM are due December 1st. Proposals can be submitted electronically to oai.reception@pdx.edu or delivered to The Office of Academic Innovation on the second mezzanine level of the Smith Memorial Student Union.
