The IN I-Corps Hub is proud to emphasize inclusive teaching practices in our instructor training program. We began developing this project as the UNY I-Corps Node and have shared the training materials with partners across the I-Corps National Innovation Network (NIN). Following recommendations from the UNY Node’s Research and Evaluation team, our curriculum team worked with experts in equity and anti-racism training, and inclusive teaching practices to develop an Inclusive and Equitable Teaching Practices training that is the first of its kind for I-Corps nationally.
This module combines firsthand perspectives from diverse entrepreneurs with reflection activities and practical classroom strategies that instructors can use to recognize and disrupting implicit bias. The goal is to empower regional instructors with the awareness and tools to create an inclusive learning environment for all entrepreneurs, especially women, underserved minorities, and the disabled.
