Conversations on Inclusive Teaching: Videos and Resources
Videos and materials are now available from the Summer 2021 Conversations on Inclusive Teaching series
This series, and now the on-demand resources here, supports Caltech faculty and instructors who would like to implement and enhance inclusive and equitable practices in their teaching. Each of the four installments offers a short overview of a few key inclusive teaching topics or practices, with a brief overview of evidence and examples of use, and then invites viewers to adapt and apply them in Caltech classes.
- Inclusive Teaching Through Active and Collaborative Learning
Integrating components of active learning into lectures, along with more extended active and collaborative methods, has strong evidence for the potential to improve learning broadly and make learning outcomes more equitable specifically. Find out what we have learned about these methods in higher education and how you could implement them in your own courses.
- Inclusive Teaching Through Transparency in Assignments and Course Design
Articulating and sharing learning goals more explicitly, whether in the course overall or in specific assignments, can have a substantial impact on students' learning and sense of belonging. Find out why transparency is such a powerful yet simple tool and how you could incorporate this approach in your own courses.
- Inclusive Teaching Through Equitable Grading and Feedback
Feedback and grading are important aspects of learning, and they represent aspects of instruction that can enhance or hinder inclusion, diversity, and equity. Find out about equitable practices that maintain high expectations and help students focus on learning, as well as how you could incorporate them into your own courses.
- Inclusive Teaching Through Universal Design for Learning
Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is an approach that helps instructors make their classes accessible and challenging for all students by incorporating multiple forms of engagement, representation, and expression. Find out how UDL can helps reduce the need for formal disability accommodations and benefits learning generally, as well as how you could incorporate UDL into your own courses.
