The concept of “inclusive pedagogy” recognizes the value and challenges of having many different and diverse students learning together. This pre-conference workshop on inclusive pedagogy has three objectives.  First, we will briefly overview current theory and practice that informs inclusive pedagogy. Second, we will discuss barriers and challenges to inclusivity at our own institutions. Third, we will work together to develop practical strategies for creating more inclusive classrooms. Inclusive teaching recognizes that encountering difference can be an important catalyst to learning—but this learning will more effectively occur when all students are included and sufficiently supported.
