This Week for Faculty: Small Changes to Foster Inclusive Teaching
Small Changes to Foster Inclusive Teaching
Inclusive classroom practices can empower students to create deeper, more meaningful learning experiences, but creating an inclusive learning environment can be a challenge. This session will outline the importance of inclusive teaching and explore a variety of evidence-based ways that inclusive teaching practices can be implemented. In this session, faculty will learn small, easily-implemented strategies to maximize equity in the classroom. Topics addressed can include constructing a supportive course climate, setting explicit expectations, constructing inclusive course content, and designing all aspects of class for accessibility. Participants will reflect on their current teaching practices and develop strategies to implement in the future.
