INCLUSIVE: A Faculty-Focused Showcase of Equitable & Effective Teaching Description We all strive to ensure that our teaching is informed by research and beneficial to our students, especially those who are least advantaged. Often, we rely on colleagues within our departments or teaching and learning centers for feedback and ideas. Less accessible to us are the innovative and inclusive pedagogies that are actively being piloted and refined outside of our home institutions. The INCLUSIVE summit will feature practical approaches to effective, equitable, and technology-supported teaching and learning. During this half-day, virtual event, faculty from across disciplines and institutions will share their experiences applying principles of culturally responsive teaching, digital learning, community building, and data-informed instruction to meet the needs of their courses and students. INCLUSIVE is a unique opportunity to connect with like-minded peers, learn about emerging practices, and engage in discussions about how to adapt strategies and resources for new and distinct teaching situations.
The digital learning and educational technology marketplace is both vast and rapidly evolving. Knowing which tools and strategies are best suited to support faculty in creating dynamic learning environments that engage students and promote equity can be overwhelming. In this session, instructional design and learning technology experts provide clear guidance and strategies that faculty can use in their classrooms today to connect with and engage their students, to build a sense of community and belonging, and to cultivate equitable learning environments across course modalities.
