As teachers, we want students to feel comfortable enough to express themselves and fully engage in our classrooms, and as students, we want to feel understood, accepted and respected. Join the Bok Center for an afternoon workshop in which we facilitate a conversation between TFs and undergraduates on practices for introducing gender pronouns in the classroom. With the aim of making gender identities and dynamics more explicit, we’ll discuss why pronouns matter in the classroom, and we’ll generate and explore different techniques for both students and teachers to articulate their pronouns. We hope you can join us; coffee, tea and snacks will be served.
We invite attendees to submit questions, concerns, or experiences with pronouns in advance of the workshop (although submitting is not a requirement for participation). Submissions will be anonymous and can be entered here.
