ATLE to Host Presentations Using Course Content to Promote Belonging and Equity

Primrose Igonor

The UA Little Rock Academy for Teaching and Learning will host a special presentation on promoting belonging and equity through course content on Thursday, Sept. 22.

Guest presenter Primrose Igonor serves as director of the Connections Center/Belonging & Equity at Marion Technical College in Ohio.

As college campuses grow increasingly diverse, students should see themselves reflected in course content as this leads to greater persistence, retention, and overall student success.

In this session, she will provide practical ways in which educators can promote diversity and inclusion through their course content and feel confident doing so. This can lead to students engaging in more critical thinking and viewing diverse topics from multiple perspectives.

The free Lunch and Learn is open to all faculty and staff at UA Little Rock. It will be held from 12:15-1:30 p.m. in Ottenheimer Library Room 535 and virtually via Zoom.

A second campus-wide discussion will take place from 3-4:30 p.m. in Ottenheimer Library Room 100A and virtually via Zoom. This opportunity is designed to explore practical and intentional ways UA Little Rock can create a sense of belonging and foster critical thinking through inclusive course content.

Born in Uganda and raised in South Africa, Igonor is a clinical psychologist who has worked internationally in South Africa, Singapore, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, and Canada. She is passionate about diversity issues and community building.
