Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) Training in the Classroom

In preparation for current and future teaching roles, this workshop series recognizes the importance of diversity and inclusion in teaching effectiveness. To have an equitable teaching environment for all students, instructors must commit to being anti-oppressive educators and actively combat power and privilege (e.g., racism, sexism, classism, etc.) in their classrooms.

This workshop series invites any JHU affliate with instructional responsbilities to examine their intersectional identities, biases, assumptions, values, and expectations of students and center students of color and other marginalized groups in course design, pedagogy, and course content. Participants will develop concrete strategies on how to develop an inclusive teaching environment and how to function as an advocate in both subject matter and teaching methods.

The next workshop in the JEDI Training in the Classroom 2024 is March 20 and 21; it's a hybrid course, given at Homewood and on Zoom. Those who attend the full two days will receive a certificate of completion. Ashley Cureton, PhD, is the facilitator. She is an assistant professor in the University of Michigan School of Social Work and an assistant professor of educational studies in the University of Michigan Marsal Family School of Education.
