This year, CSUDH's Innovative Teaching Symposium highlights our journey's and experiences as faculty members who have taught and continue to teach during a global pandemic. Since march 2020, COVID-19 who have taught and continue to teach during a global pandemic. Since March 2020, COVID-19 has not only had a profound impact on our students but has also had a significant impact on faculty-our personal lives and how we teach and approach student learning. The past two years have exposed myriad ways in which structural inequities affect the lives of our students; we have also witnessed our students adapt to the changed learning landscape.

During the period of remote instruction and to the present, faculty have undertaken unprecedented professional development to implement teaching practices and methods that are more equitable, inclusive, and compassionate, and humane. This year's Innovative Teaching Symposium seeks to acknowledge and highlight these strategies and efforts.

We invite faculty proposals as either fully developed panels, individual presentations, or roundtables focused on ITS theme of equity and compassion that draw on the following topics:

  • Teaching First-Generation College Students
  • Equitable Assessment Practices
  • Online Teaching and Learning
  • First Year Seminar
  • Association of College and University Educators (ACUE) Courses
  • Faculty Learning Communities
  • How COVID-19 Has Changed Your Teaching Practices
  • Building Flexibility Into Your Courses
  • Utilizing Educational Technology - Structural Strengths and Challenges

The Innovative Symposium is sponsored by the Center for Innovation in STEM Education (CISE)-DHSI Grant, Academic Affairs, and Faculty Affairs & Development.
