The Chicago Center for Teaching’s Inclusive Pedagogy Programs are offered in collaboration with The Office of the Provost. Inclusive pedagogy activities intend to encourage greater engagement with diversity and equitable learning in the classroom. A regular suite of workshops, a reading group, resources, and annual grants are available. In addition, the CCT supports the Race and Pedagogy Working Group, and collaborates with various units for learning and practicing inclusion. For current events and programming see Upcoming Events.
Engaging All Students is the CCT’s comprehensive resource on inclusive teaching. Based on the latest research on inclusive pedagogy, Engaging All Students provides practical, evidence-based tools and approaches for designing, delivering, and assessing courses that reach a diverse student body.
Underrepresented College Students’ Transition to Remote Learning: A Qualitative Study was conducted by the Office of the Provost’s Diversity & Inclusion team in Spring 2020.
The study was designed to learn about the experiences of students who might be disproportionately affected by the transition to remote learning. It offers insights into the areas of (1) instruction; (2) student routines and learning environments; (3) student mental health and wellbeing; (4) student belonging, social connections, and activities; and (5) University communications and policies.
