Teaching Inclusively

May 13, 2021 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm


This workshop expands on basic principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion by offering practical advice on how to use Maslow’s hierarchy of needs as key a companion to Bloom’s taxonomy in the design of courses, class assignments, and assessments. Through discussion and small group exercises, participants will identify how promoting and practicing inclusivity sustains learning outcomes and fosters effective teaching. This workshop also aims at guiding instructors’ in the process of implementing low input, high impact actions that derive from their own philosophies of inclusion and syllabus statements.

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Identify attitudes and issues related to inclusive teaching.
  • Implement inclusivity in their teaching with the goal of enhancing safety, connections, and support.
  • Discuss and share strategies for teaching inclusively in a face-to-face, remote, or hybrid environment.
