Carolina’s classrooms are changing.
Professors Kelly Hogan and Viji Sathy are transforming theirs to be more interactive and inclusive — an effort that has helped overcome achievement gaps.
This week, we’re talking about the teaching innovation with Hogan, a senior STEM lecturer and the director of instructional innovation at the College of Arts and Sciences, and Sathy, Special Projects Assistant to the Senior Associate Dean for Undergraduate Education and a senior lecturer in the department of Psychology and Neurosciences.
In addition, Hogan and Sathy’s work to create inclusive classrooms will be the topic of the semester’s first Carolina Conversations event on Sept. 19 at 5 p.m.
An initiative launched last school year, Carolina Conversations aims to ensure that the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill remains an inclusive and welcoming campus for all.
Hosted by Chancellor Carol L. Folt, the event will be held at the Student Union. The discussion, moderated by Interim Chief Diversity Officer Rumay Alexander, will focus on the multiple identities of individuals and their interplay in inclusive classrooms.
All students, staff, and faculty are welcome to attend and light refreshments will be served.
