A New Guide on Increasing Inclusivity in the Classroom
Among the greatest challenges facing higher education in the US rests in its difficulties confronting, rather than replicating, an array of social inequalities, and in related efforts to create diverse and democratic campus cultures.
These challenges touch every area of campus life, but no domain is as central to this work as the classroom. The Center for Teaching has embarked upon a theme year on Teaching, Difference, and Power as a way to explore many of the challenges educators face as they negotiate difference and inequality in their classrooms.
Throughout this academic year, the CFT will be producing various online resources as a part of this endeavor. The first is this Guide on Increasing Inclusivity in the Classroom written by former Graduate Teaching Fellow, Andrew Greer, from Human and Organizational Development. It is the first of several guides that will address different aspects of this year’s theme.
