What is Inclusive Teaching?

Inclusive Teaching is a range of intentional strategies that engage students in meaningful learning, create an environment where all students feel valued and provide equal access to learning materials. 

Creating learning experiences that are purposeful, relevant and accessible to all your students requires advanced planning. When designing inclusive courses, you should ask the following questions (adapted from NYU’s toolkit): 

  • Are the learning experiences accessible for all students? 

  • Do the course policies take into account the different challenges students may encounter?

  • Does the course content provide diverse perspectives, including those that are often marginalized?

  • Are the assessments designed for improvement?

  • Do students have the opportunity to demonstrate learning in more than one way?
