Inclusive Teaching

Students do not learn the same or come to campus with the same set of backgrounds. Personalization of teaching and learning involves adapting teaching techniques to accommodate a wide variety of students. Inclusive teaching is part of personalization of teaching and specifically refers to practices that provide equitable learning opportunities for a variety of learning styles and backgrounds. In addition, there are common techniques to avoid and that may inadvertently marginalize students who may not fit an assumed definition of a typical student. The Collaborative for Advancing Learning and Teaching offers workshops and programs that specifically address inclusive teaching.
