Cultivating an Inclusive Classroom

The primary responsibility of instructors and teaching assistants is to do their best to maximize the learning outcomes for ALL of their students in a classroom. In this workshop, participants will be provided with a framework to help them think about how to be most inclusive in their expectations for learning, pedagogical choices, and assessment of learning outcomes. Participants will leave the workshop with tools to help them negotiate the opportunities and challenges that arise when teaching in a classroom that is comprised of a diverse student population. Participants will be encouraged to think about how their own expectations about how students should communicate or respond to instructors and peers, be assessed for achievement of course goals, and/or demonstrate active participation in class (among others) will have a direct impact on the extent to which each student maximizes his or her potential in the course.
