Description

With the implementation of IMSA’s Equity and Excellence Plan, we are tasked with ensuring that our curriculum and instructional strategies meet the needs of all of our students particularly through a lens of equity. One of the Plan’s outcomes is to “Differentiate resources as necessary to provide every student with access to Culturally Competent pedagogy, curriculum, co-curriculum, support, facilities and other educational resources with an ultimate goal of achieving Excellence.” This webinar will explore some of the successes and challenges that IMSA is facing from an academic perspective and how we are attempting to move forward with ensuring that we provide all students with learning experiences that are equitable, personable, and culturally responsive.
