Abstract

  • How to humanize the classroom climate and establish an authentic presence that can challenge the conventional Westernized classroom structure.
  • How graduate instructors can use their malleable identity to their advantage in cultivating an inclusive community of diverse learners. There are experiences that are unique to graduate instructors, especially for those of us who come from underrepresented cultural backgrounds. These experiences can be utilized to construct a more inclusive and diverse learning environment, which could then encourage students to do the same.
