Center for Teaching, Learning & Technology

Equity-Minded Pedagogy Workshop | Winter-Spring 2024

Registration is now closed.


This is an opportunity for faculty to learn to use institutional data, human-centered design, and equity-mindedness to inform teaching practices toward the goal of eliminating equity gaps and improving first-time course completion rates. Key topics include:

  • Using human-centered design to create learning experiences that put the needs of students at the center
  • Gathering and utilizing feedback from students and student affairs professionals
  • Iterating on lesson and course designs to continuously improve student learning experiences.

The fully online workshop experience will be within a community of practice along with faculty from multiple CSU campuses and supported by Cal Poly facilitators. This allows faculty to connect with other CSU educators who are committed to equity and social justice with opportunities to learn from their experiences creating inclusive and equitable classrooms.

The workshop is designed by William Hardaway, instructional designer in the Office of IDEAS at Fresno State, who is also the course lead. The workshop is supported by the CSU Chancellor's Office for faculty around the CSU.


The fully online workshop includes five modules and both synchronous and asynchronous components. Workshop meetings are both synchronous and asynchronous and there are assignments to be completed outside of course meetings. Participants should expect to spend approximately 25 hours total to complete the five modules.


Workshop will open March 4, with synchronous online sessions on Fridays from 2:00-4:00pm. There are four required, synchronous zoom sessions and two optional synchronous sessions:

  • Friday, March 8, 3:30-4:00pm (optional course orientation and technology overview; will be recorded)
  • Friday, March 15, 2:00-4:00pm required
  • Friday, March 22, 2:00-4:00pm required
  • Friday, April 5, 2:00-4:00pm (optional data session; will be recorded)
  • Friday, April 12, 2:00-4:00pm required
  • Friday, April 26, 2:00-4:00pm required
