17 Who are You Not Reaching? Designing Your Course to Gain Maximum Engagement from All Students


Reaching students can be a significant challenge for any course. Research suggests that we gain a broader response when attending to principles of inclusive teaching and best practices in inclusive course design. In this interactive session, attendees will review a series of best practices for inclusive teaching and course design which are designed to be implemented in a variety of courses. The session will cover setting course expectations, establishing norms for professional communications and collaborations, and iterative improvements. Participants will have an opportunity to discuss and reflect on the challenges of including students across multiple aspects of courses.
