Teaching for Inclusion and Equity

Ann Arbor MI 10-16-2019 10-16-2019

Research shows that student learning is enhanced when instructors put thought and action into creating environments that are inclusive of students across a range of backgrounds and identities. How can instructors deliberately cultivate learning environments where all students feel valued, respected, and supported in their learning? This interactive session will provide structured opportunities for instructors to: Reflect on your own goals and practices related to inclusion and equity in your teaching Engage with some key research-based inclusive teaching principles to consider how they might apply to your teaching context Exchange ideas with colleagues in many disciplines about teaching practices in order to support the deliberate cultivation of inclusive learning environments at UM.
