The Four Presences: An Inclusive Workshop for Diverse Faculty Audiences

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The Community of Inquiry (CoI) framework, which has a focus on presences - teaching, cognitive, social - has the ability to unite faculty through the shared goal of creating more inclusive courses. The three presences, plus the addition of emotional, provide the foundation for this session, designed to support educational developers tasked with offering workshops that are relevant to cross-disciplinary faculty audiences. The presenters model a workshop on the presences and highlight their ability to transcend disciplines and modalities. Upon completion, participants should feel prepared to return to their campuses with blueprints and materials to host their own workshops.
