Goal 2 & Goal 3
What is it?
Teachly is a software tool designed by members of the Harvard Kennedy School to “help faculty members teach more inclusively and effectively.” The software allows the faculty to track student participation in real-time in order for the faculty to flag students that might not be participating as much, as well as acknowledge their own bias when they call on students.
What goal(s) does it connect to?
Goal 2: Academic, Professional, and Social Integration
- Goal 2.1: Academic and Professional Excellence
Goal 3: Union of Academic Freedom and a Culture of Mutual Respect and Concern
- Goal 3.1: Trust-building
Why is it important?
This tool gives faculty time and space to reflect on their teaching habits and patterns and self-identify subconscious bias or areas of improvement. Additionally, it reinforces the notion that the classroom is a space for all students, and everyone should participate and have equal opportunities to participate.
