At the Teaching Commons, we provide leadership in the pursuit of engaged teaching practices centred on the student learning experience. We create and support equitable spaces for faculty engagement for all who teach at York. We recognise the urgency of taking a direct approach to ensuring that we remain committed to, and transparent about, Equity, Decolonization, Diversity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (EDDIA)-informed practice within our work. We understand that this work is iterative and ongoing; therefore, our offerings are continuously evolving to reflect contextual best practices, emerging expertise, and new scholarly literature pertaining to equity-informed pedagogy. As we continue to do this challenging work, the way we engage and respond will change, evolve, and adapt.
We also take a distributed approach to EDDIA-related work across our team and across our offerings. Principles of equity and inclusion are embedded throughout our consultations, workshops, courses, events, and resources. We aim to support these values by building connections across the diverse York community and beyond, inviting perspectives of experts and leaders in this field.
If you have an accessibility or accommodation need regarding engaging with us in any way, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or when communicating with any of our staff. Should you have any EDDIA-related questions or concerns respecting any of our programming, offerings, or resources, you can let us know via email or through our Teaching Commons Suggestion Box.
