Effective Teaching for Diverse Learners


Develop as an effective instructor with strategies to create an inclusive classroom.

Workshop + Creating Session: Inclusive Teaching - Creating the Classroom Culture

This two-in-one workshop + create session starts with strategies for communicating ideas effectively to all learners, from the lecture hall to the seminar room, and deploying course materials that support the inclusivity push currently sweeping higher education. During the second “create” half of the session, participants will have the opportunity to develop guidelines for their classroom culture, and then work through challenges they might encounter with their model.

Creating an Inclusive Classroom 

Faculty from the CAMSEE community, in collaboration with the Teaching + Learning Commons, the Office of the VC for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, and the UC San Diego Campus Community Centers, invite you to participate in a hands-on workshop on creating an inclusive classroom.

The workshop will support faculty and educators in learning about tangible strategies to build inclusive classroom learning environments, sustainable practices to create welcoming educational communities, and learner-centered syllabi that addresses diverse needs of our students. These inclusive teaching practices will have a large impact on individual students’ learning experiences in our courses.

Workshop: Inclusive Teaching Tools

Inclusivity is more than a buzzword - it is a necessary strategy for any instructor who wants to communicate their material effectively. In this workshop, you will learn about the evidence-based reasons behind the inclusivity push, and then you will brainstorm and consider specific, actionable tools to implement in designing and facilitating your class. This workshop is offered stand-alone and in conjunction with other sessions.

Workshop: Responding to Resistance

Despite our best efforts to design a supportive and inclusive classroom, there might be students whose comments or actions are not conducive to this environment. When do we intervene? How do we respond? Discuss scenarios and consider which tactics might be most effective for you. Next workshop date TBD.
