Inclusive pedagogy refers to the ways in which courses, classroom activities, curricula, and assessment are designed and delivered to engage all students in learning that is meaningful, relevant and accessible. It embraces a view of the individual and individual differences as sources of diversity that can enrich the lives and learning of others. (Hockings, 2010) Through workshops, services, resources, and a course we support the University of Chicago’s faculty, instructors, postdocs, and graduate students in their knowledge acquisition, skill development, and practice of inclusive pedagogy. Participants will be exposed to different ideas and resources they can use to enhance their courses and approaches to teaching. During these interactive workshops, they will consider how inclusion enhances learning, practice some strategies, and leave with resources. Graduate students, postdocs, instructors, and faculty are invited.
