Session Format

The diversification of college classrooms and unequal academic outcomes between different socioeconomic groups of students requires a critical examination of the learning environment. Part of this examination includes faculty teaching practices. Pedagogical transformation requires providing support for practitioners who may not have previously considered the fundamental concepts of inclusion in their practice. Our workshop makes the case for inclusive teaching practice. We introduce participants to the fundamentals of inclusive pedagogy, and, demonstrate ways in which they can be implemented and assessed. We envision this workshop as an opportunity for participants to continue their career-long commitment to developing inclusive classrooms.
