Session Abstract: Teaching strategies that emphasize structured active learning can create more equitable classrooms and improve learning for all students. As an introduction to inclusive teaching techniques, UNC Professors Kelly Hogan and Viji Sathy, authors of the highly regarded Inclusive Teaching: Strategies for Promoting Equity in College Classrooms, will ask participants to reflect on inequities and diversity in their classrooms through interactive, hands-on activities. After providing a framework for inclusive design and their own research results, Hogan and Sathy will lead participants through active learning exercises and case studies that explore inclusive techniques. Drawing upon their own teaching experiences and educational research, they will model approaches that can be readily implemented with any discipline or class size to help all students achieve their potential. Participants are also invited to register and attend a panel discussion with Professors Hogan and Sathy from 1:00 - 2:00 pm.
