Teaching Inclusive strategies for engaging

Students are more likely to succeed when they feel valued and supported and when their instructors are aware of and attempt to counter systemic inequalities that affect their and their peers’ performance. We will strategize about implementing Inclusive techniques, addressing potential barriers, and adjusting for specific course contexts. We will also reflect on moving from strategies to broader frameworks for thinking about inclusive and anti-racist pedagogies.

Participants will explore different definitions of inclusivity; identify low-barrier-to-entry techniques to create a more inclusive environment; and strategize about how to implement inclusive teaching techniques in different course contexts.

This workshop is part of the Innovative Teaching & Learning workshop series for GW instructors seeking strategies to increase student engagement, build an inclusive community, and communicate with learners in new ways. Workshops in this series are sponsored by the Instructional Core. The Instructional Core provides comprehensive, integrated solutions for instructors in search of teaching solutions. If you need feedback on assignment or syllabus design, advice on teaching methods, or ideas for new activities, consider booking a consultation with the Instructional Core.

All sessions are free to GW students, faculty, staff, and alumni. GW has an institutional commitment to ensuring that all of our programs and events are accessible for all individuals. If you require any accommodations to participate in this event, please contact libraryevents@gwu.edu at least 72 business hours (3 business days) prior to the event.
