During the 2016-2017 academic year, the Reinert Center will offer programming and resources focused on the theme of Inclusive Teaching, which we consider to be the intentional use of course design and teaching methods to create equitable learning environments where all learners can be successful, regardless of differences in identity, background, and ability. Inclusive teaching involves an explicit commitment to recognizing and minimizing the potential for exclusion, in everything from syllabus design to assessment methods, from instructional strategies to classroom layout. It is a commitment continuously enacted, in small and large ways.
Throughout the year, we will highlight different aspects of inclusive teaching through in-person events and web-based resources [LINK], sharing concrete, evidence-based strategies for reducing exclusion and enhancing inclusion.
