Diversity and Inclusion in Course Materials: A Practical Approach

Wednesday, January 16, 2019 at 9:30am to 10:30am

This is a past event.

Doheny Memorial Library (DML)
3550 Trousdale Parkway, Los Angeles, CA 90089

Hosted by Elizabeth Galoozis, Head of Information Literacy; Karen Howell, Head, Leavey Library; Karin Saric, Information Services Librarian

The Center for Excellence in Teaching (CET)'s Diversity & Inclusion Syllabus Checklist recommends including "traditionally un- or under-represented perspectives and voices woven throughout, not included as an add-on, one-off, or separate section." What does this mean in terms of concrete actions and assigned materials? A panel of librarians will discuss strategies for searching for more diverse and inclusive materials, and how to most efficiently and accessibly connect students with them, including fast-tracking library acquisition of materials and using open educational resources (OER). Suggestions from participants are welcomed and will be incorporated into the discussion. 

Librarians will also debut a Diversity Resource Guide that will include resources ranging from high-level overviews on diversity to core titles.  The discussion will cover the following content:
• High-level resources that provide information on how to implement diversity across campus
• Links to key diversity resources and specific information within them; i.e., data resources, diversity journals, relevant centers/organizations
•  A list of core titles selected in collaboration with Dr. Shaun Harper, Director, USC Race and Equity Center
•  A survey for faculty to communicate information needs relevant to diversity implementation research/pedagogical questions


Location: DML 241
