The overarching goal of this toolkit is to reinforce, inspire, and facilitate change towards more EDI-minded teaching practices.
This toolkit aims to reach a broad audience. While many are well-versed in the language of EDI for some, this content may be unfamiliar.
Learning (and unlearning) are complex, multifaceted processes and this toolkit is intended to offer support in this ongoing journey.
To ensure Humber faculty had a “roadmap” to guide how they integrate EDI into their professional practice, an EDI Toolkit entitled “Teaching for Belonging: Inclusive and Identity Responsive Instruction" was developed. The author of “Teaching for Belonging: Inclusive and Identity Responsive Instruction" is Professor Shara Stone. You can access the PDF version of Professor Stone's work by clicking the thumbnail image to the right. Shara Stone's work is the basis of this online version of the EDI Toolkit.
We would like to acknowledge and thank Shara Stone for her work and commitment to equity and inclusion in higher education.
1. Promote reflection
2. Raise awareness
3. Encourage critical thinking and discussion
4. Provide strategies to further the incorporation of the EDI framework into teaching and curriculum development
This virtual toolkit explores a number of controversial topics that may be emotionally charging for some. The toolkit is intended to provide guidance as you navigate your journey towards more EDI-minded teaching, and it promotes self-reflection and critical thinking along the way. Your lived experiences and who you are will shape how you enter this work and how you are affected by the material. We encourage you to take breaks when necessary and reach out when support is needed.
