Practical Steps for Inclusive Teaching
This resource guide, adapted from a LSA Technology Services webinar (full recording at the bottom of the page), provides practical ways for instructors to get to know students as individuals, design inclusive course content and material, allow multiple ways to demonstrate learning, and integrate a variety of student engagement techniques (SETs).
The methods in this resource guide vary in terms of implementation and rather than trying to take on all of them at once, read through the resource guide and highlight strategies you can begin to implement immediately, those that you want to learn more about, and those that you want to implement down the road.
The strategies outlined in this resource guide are in line with Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles as well as active learning principles. If you are unfamiliar with UDL, this resource guide (coming soon) is a great place to start learning more about it. You can also reference the CAST website – the organization that created the UDL framework and guidelines. If you are unfamiliar with active learning, this resource guide (coming soon) is a helpful starting point in learning more about it.
