Inclusive Teaching

Inclusion should be a part of every fabric of any institutional identity and practice. The goal is to create an environment that is conducive to learning for all students from differing backgrounds. To help build a beneficial course climate that serves all students, instructors should strive for a classroom that fosters belonging and value for students of all identities, backgrounds, and experiences. Dr. Christina Cobb, the current Inclusive Teaching Fellow with the LT&ITC, sought out the opportunity to receive extensive training in Inclusive Teaching and the following resources have been gathered from her research and training. Please feel free to reach out to her to set-up a consultation and/or workshop.
