The inclusive classroom: Creating assignments that promote and value diversity

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

An inclusive classroom is one in which all students from varying cultures, backgrounds, races, ethnicities, etc., feel comfortable participating in class discussions and are encouraged to explore numerous perspectives while being respectful of everyone's differences. There are assignments that can promote this enriching dialogue by introducing students to new viewpoints and allowing them to feel safe as they discover them. This panel will discuss various assignments they have used to foster this type of inclusive environment and share tips on how faculty can create some of their own.
