“This classroom is for everyone”: Practical strategies for establishing inclusive learning environments

Tuesday, January 30, 2018 | 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
The registration period has closed for this event.

What is an Inclusive Classroom and what is your role as an instructor in creating and maintaining an environment that respects the diverse experiences and abilities of students? What are some common barriers – attitudinal, cultural, physical – that undermine inclusivity in the classroom? In this discussion-based session we’ll use campus-focused scenarios to help identify the characteristics of inclusive learning environments. We will then determine specific strategies to deal with (un)intentional moments of exclusionary and oppressive behaviours that may affect the participation of students, particularly those belonging to equity seeking groups.


Registration open through Tuesday, January 30, 2018
