Inclusive Teaching Endorsement
College classrooms are one of the few places in an increasingly polarized world where students have to engage with different perspectives over time. This learning environment can be an opportunity for transformative learning experiences, directly correlated with motivation, engagement and achievement (Zumbrunn et al. 2014). Many teachers, however, feel underprepared to foster meaningful discourse or support a diverse student body. Inclusive teaching describes the range of approaches to teaching that creates a learning environment where all students feel valued and have equal access to learning. This endorsement will allow you to explore issues and tools for creating inclusive learning environments.
