Increasing Inclusivity in the Classroom Workshop Series

Increasing Inclusivity in the Classroom:
A Workshop Series for WSCOE Faculty and Staff

Inclusive pedagogy, “involves deliberately cultivating a learning environment where all students are treated equitably, have equal access to learning, and feel valued and supported in their learning. Such teaching attends to social identities and seeks to change the ways systemic inequities shape dynamics in teaching-learning spaces, affect individuals’ experiences of those spaces, and influence course and curriculum design”1

Workshop information

The workshop series will give you a greater understanding of inclusive principles that can be implemented in the classroom.

We seek to help individuals who teach develop awareness, knowledge, and skills to better support ALL students.  

  •  Lunch will be provided 30 minutes prior to the start of the session.
  • The workshop will comprise a series of three 90-minute sessions, each with a particular focus and each building upon the previous.
  • We expect registrants will be able to commit to attending all three sessions
  • Space is limited.
