Implementing Inclusive Teaching Principles in Your Classroom (for faculty)

This session is particularly well suited for faculty who are relatively new to thinking deliberately about inclusive teaching practice, though anyone is welcome to attend. Much scholarship on teaching and learning provides insights about the importance of an explicitly inclusive classroom climate for student learning, the value of learning collaboratively with diverse peers, and the benefits of intentionally connecting new concepts to prior knowledge. How might these ideas inform your regular classroom practice to result in more-inclusive learning environments? In this activities-based workshop, faculty will experience and reflect upon teaching strategies for helping students engage and learn across their differences, as well as for introducing course material in ways that productively draw upon students' various backgrounds and perspectives. This workshop is designed for faculty in any discipline.

This session is part of the Inclusive Teaching @ Michigan series. Please see the full listing of series events here.
