Inclusive teaching is effective teaching and thus requires significant thoughtful preparation. This workshop introduces participants to the different dimensions of inclusive course design through the use of a course and syllabus review form, Inclusion by Design: Survey Your Syllabus and Course Design. This tool was created by the facilitators and Dr. Carl Moore (University of the District of Columbia) for the purpose of examining syllabi, assignments, and learning activities regarding inclusion, diversity, and equity. Participants are asked to bring examples of their own syllabi that they use in their classes and will have an opportunity to analyze them using the review form introduced in the workshop. If possible, participants should review the syllabus tool prior to coming to the workshop. If not, please come anyway. 

Faculty participants will make progress toward these program outcomes:

  • Designing more inclusive courses, and 
  • Using best practices in access and inclusion in their syllabi.

Faculty participants will make progress toward these teaching outcomes:

  • Appreciating pedagogy—the art and science of teaching and learning--as a significant higher education endeavor,
  • Identifying factors that influence pedagogical choices, and
  • Designing and offering courses or curricula that align learning objectives, assessment, and learning activities.

Facilitator:
