High Burnout, Low Turnout: Re-imagining Learning Communities for Inclusive Teaching

To promote greater inclusivity within DEI programming, we developed inter-rank, community-led learning communities supported by a POD mini-grant. We invited graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, and faculty to facilitate and/or participate in inclusive teaching learning communities with varying topics (e.g., anti-racist pedagogy, trauma-informed pedagogy) and formats. Despite benefits for our trained facilitators, we struggled in recruiting and retaining participants. We will discuss strategies for encouraging greater participation in DEI programs, in the context of COVID-19 burnout and exhaustion. How can we reconnect with and re-energize our campus communities? How do we re-imagine programming to turn out the ‘burned out’?
