Affirming all Identities: LGBTQ+ Inclusivity in the Classroom
MetadataShow full item record
Students thrive in academic environments that explicitly confront LGBTQ+ discrimination and change the heteronormative and cisnormative discourses (Linley et al., 2016). While instructors might have the best intentions for promoting an inclusive atmosphere in the classroom, understanding the techniques imperative for creating inclusive environments is not always intuitive. The present review provides attendees with valuable techniques and information regarding classroom inclusivity for LGBTQ+ students. The presenters aim to enable instructors to maintain a classroom that promotes diversity, creativity, and inclusivity, to initiate engaging discussions, and to handle potential conflicts that may arise.
