Co-Creating Globally Inclusive Learning Communities

Goosby J. Smith, Susan Schick Case


The purpose of this session is to demonstrate how we create a sense of inclusion in our consulting engagements, management classrooms, and at professional meetings where the diversity in the room is relevant. A sense of inclusion supports interpersonal and intrapersonal learning. This is most useful in educational environments that seek to help participants understand better themselves and others. As a guide, we utilize Smith & Lindsay’s (2014) behavioral model of Ubuntic Inclusion to create an inclusive learning community.  In this workshop, we will facilitate our three-part Co-Creating Globally Inclusive Classrooms (CGIC) workshop which quickly creates a basis for inclusion in a learning community.  CGIC involves three short learning exercises focused on intrapersonal reflection, interpersonal communication, and assessment of learning. The three exercises are: “Navigating Identity: Voices from the Past,” “Inclusion Peaks (and Valleys),” and the “Web of Inclusion.”
