Inclusive Pedagogy

Inclusive pedagogy at its core is a student-centered approach to teaching that allows faculty to create an inviting and engaging learning environment for students with varied backgrounds, learning styles, and physical and cognitive abilities in the classroom. Drawing from a large body of teaching and learning scholarship it is clear that inclusive pedagogy improves learning outcomes when faculty attend to student differences and take deliberate steps to ensure that all students feel welcomed and supported in the classroom (Florian, 2015; Spratt & Florian, 2015)

Principles of Inclusive Pedagogy

  • Being Flexible – open to change and versatile
  • Being Equitable – ensuring consistency and accessibility for all
  • Working Collaboratively – involving students and stakeholders
  • Supporting Personalization – recognizing that successful learning and teaching is governed by personal difference
  • Embracing Diversity – creating opportunities to develop awareness of diversity and global issues
