Session Format
As students become increasingly diverse, there is a push for faculty to continue to provide courses that engage all students. What is therefore needed is a framework that will (i) facilitate change in adoption of inclusive teaching practices in HE and (ii) promote institutional synergy and change. To this end, we propose an inclusive excellence framework that describes these inclusive practices as a way to improve student learning and enhance institutional capacity building. In this interactive session, participants will utilize this framework to develop strategies for cultivating sustainable faculty learning communities and institutional programs that promote the development of culturally responsive professional identities
