In the Chronicle’s The Case for Inclusive Teaching article we explored what is inclusive pedagogy. Gannon stated, “It is a mind-set, a teaching-and-learning worldview, more than a discrete set of techniques. But that mind-set does value specific practices which, research suggests, are effective for a mix of students.” More specifically:
- It values course design. Inclusive teaching asks us to critically examine not just the way we teach on a day-to-day basis, but the prep work and organization we do before the course begins.
- It values discernment. As faculty members, we must regularly ask ourselves: What biases am I carrying, and how do I counteract their effects?
- It values a sense of belonging. How do we erode those old inequities and power imbalances in the classroom? By intentionally using teaching strategies that promote a sense of belonging, a critical element of student learning, and thus, of student success writ large.
