Inclusive Pedagogy in Higher Education: A Mindset and Continual Practice

Last updated July 15, 2020

Shift your mindset and practices to ensure you meaningfully engage marginalized and underrepresented students.


Faculty and instructors are preparing to enter a changed classroom climate in the fall. The Black Lives Matter movement and the resulting public reckoning are causing many educators to examine the hegemonic values that have molded our classrooms over time. Too often, we are unaware of the limiting mindsets and structures that hold us back from meaningfully engaging marginalized and underrepresented students.

Inclusive teaching is more than simply completing a checklist of best practices. This approach requires instructors to pair critical self-reflection with actions in the classroom. Join us for this highly interactive virtual training and dialogue to learn how to transform your teaching practices to better engage, support, and prepare your students without sacrificing rigor. Dr. China Jenkins from Texas Southern University will guide our discussion and share strategies for cultivating a pedagogy of inclusion.

Who should attend?

This training was designed for faculty, instructors, and leaders from centers for teaching and learning and faculty affairs who are looking for a safe space to examine their practices and take away strategies for more inclusive teaching.
