Interested in developing your pedagogy skills?

As campus and national events play out in the news, it is more important than ever to engage in discussion of diversity in our community. Join us for a presentation and discussion on diversity and pedagogy at Fordham.

While the classroom can be a space for open, respectful discussion of sensitive or controversial topics – such as those related to identity and inequality, religious beliefs, or political ideologies – facilitating such discussions can be a challenging prospect.

 What is Inclusive Teaching?

 Inclusive teaching and learning refers to modes of teaching and learning that are designed to actively engage, include, and challenge all students. The practice of inclusive teaching can help instructors broaden and expand their understanding of their own disciplines and of what they hope to accomplish in teaching and in research.

  • Include Diverse Content, Materials, and Ideas in the Classroom
  • Create an Inclusive Environment
  • Encourage a Growth Mindset
  • Strive for Equality of Access to Instruction and Assistance
