    AT Program and Inclusive Pedagogy Series: Principles and Practices of Inclusive Pedagogy Elective Workshop

    In any discipline or field, a key goal (and challenge) is supporting the learning of all students despite their many differences. Inclusive Teaching refers to the ways in which pedagogy, curricula, and assessment are designed and delivered to engage students in learning that is meaningful, relevant, and accessible to all. It means creating a learning environment where students, irrespective of their backgrounds, can maximize their own learning and the learning of others. This workshop will provide a space to discuss and explore principles and practices connected to inclusive teaching and learning, share strategies for applying these ideas to the classroom or other educational spaces, and think about who our students are, who we are, and how that informs what and how we teach. We will focus on pedagogical approaches that productively engage student identity and experience in the learning process and incorporate active learning techniques.

Please note that, while Apprenticeship in Teaching (AT) workshops are open to faculty, they are designed for graduate students. Presentations and many of the exercises are designed for instructors with relatively little teaching experience. Some workshops are more appropriate than others for those with more teaching experience. Faculty with a particular interest in one of the AT workshops should contact James Olsen before registering.
