RCR Forum: Transgender Inclusion in the Classroom

Monday, April 17, 2017

Learn how to create a classroom that incorporates trans* students. Led by an expert in transgender issues and educational policy, this workshop will provide models and training in creating a classroom that incorporates trans* students, with examples of best-practices and illustrations. We welcome graduate students, undergraduates interested in education or trans* issues, and faculty or instructors. This workshop is co-sponsored by the Duke Graduate School, Duke's Department of Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies, and the Duke Center for Instructional Technology.
