What can Inclusive Teaching Practices Look Like? From Experiments to Successful Strategies

Series: CTLT Institute

Event Date & Time

  • December 5, 2017
    3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Event Description

Studies have shown teaching practices that engage with the diversity of learners in terms of social and cultural background, learning styles, and abilities can contribute positively to students’ wellbeing and sense of belonging at the university, both of which influence students’ ability to learn.

This session is for those of us who wish to implement new teaching strategies and explore lessons learned from strategies that other instructors have used in their UBC classrooms. Panelists from a range of disciplines will share their pedagogical practices, as well as their trials and errors in making their teaching practice more inclusive.
