Earn an Endorsement
- Let us know you're interested by completing an endorsement interest form.
- Participate in at least six events, sessions or workshops (about 9-12 hours total) that have been approved by the consortium. Synchronous and asynchronous offerings are updated regularly.
- Complete an endorsement reflection for each event you attend. Each reflection will be reviewed using this rubric.
- Participants will be awarded a certificate upon successful completion. Participants also have the option of selecting two individuals whom the consortium will notify on their behalf.
Participation in the Inclusive Teaching Endorsement program is self-directed, and credit is earned via synchronous and asynchronous engagements that can be undertaken as your time allows. Reflection submissions are accepted on a rolling basis and are reviewed three times a year in January, June, and September. Participants who submit six approved reflections will be awarded an endorsement certificate at the end of each the review period.
