Inclusive Pedagogy: Meeting the Needs of our Diverse Student Body
In this workshop we will engage instructors in a broad discussion of inclusive pedagogy, the evidence for its importance, and specific practices they can use with students. Using active approaches, participants will reflect on their role as educators and their teaching practices, and on who their students are and the experiences they bring to the classroom. We will also discuss ideas to incorporate new strategies toward a more inclusive classroom.
