What is this website?

A project of the Inclusive Pedagogies subcommittee of the LSA Undergraduate Education Climate Committee, this website centralizes resources to support instructors in incorporating more inclusive teaching methods in their classrooms. It offers a robust database of instructional resources including definitions and elements of inclusive teaching, scripts and videotaped simulations of key activities, reflections and advice from journeyed faculty, and narratives from students about their experiences.


Can I copy these materials?

Definitely. You can copy these handouts both for your own use and for dissemination within your teaching settings. We ask that you maintain acknowledgement information in the footer of the downloadable documents so that appropriate credit is given.


Do I have permission to adapt these files?

We invite you to adapt these resources to make them more effective for your practice. Please maintain the acknowledgement information in the footer of the downloadable documents so that appropriate credit is maintained.


Can I share these resources with my colleagues?

Absolutely! Our goal is for this website and the embedded resources to be shared and utilized widely.


How do I contribute a resource?

We welcome suggestions of additional resources to include. Please share these with us via our Contact form.


Where do I get additional help?

If you want guidance on how to incorporate these resources into your teaching, please use our Contact form to reach us. For further support, the Center for Research on Learning and Teaching (CRLT) consults with instructors on any aspect of their teaching.

Additionally, instructors in LSA who teach courses meeting the race and ethnicity requirement (R&E) can contact the Program on Intergroup Relations at igr.info@umich.edu for more resources and support.


Can someone facilitate a session like this in my class for me?
Thank you for your commitment to creating inclusive environments within your classroom. While we cannot guarantee that we will be able to visit your class, you can reach us us via our Contact form with more information about what you are hoping to do. We will consider these requests on a case by case basis.


Is there an associated cost?
These resources are free for you to use. We are committed to promoting inclusive teaching practices and want to make resources like these as easily accessible as possible. Note: If you seek out additional resources (i.e., assistance leading a session in your class), there may be costs associated.


How can I get involved?
So glad you asked—there are lots of ways to get involved! For example, we welcome you to send us resources to include on the website and feedback about what already exists. This project would also benefit from more instructors who are willing and able to coach others on how to approach inclusive teaching and the incorporation of resources like these. Additionally, we need people to help us share this site with other instructors around campus. Please use our Contact form to share your interests more specifically, and we will be in touch to discuss them.
