How can teachers create an inclusive classroom? This is the central question we will pose during the “Inclusive Teaching and Learning Best Practice Workshop” hosted by the Community for Learning & Innovation (CLI) and the Diversity & Inclusion Office.

The best practices that will be shared will focus on the four important components needed to create an inclusive learning environment:

  1. Community building
  2. Communication
  3. Critical Reflection 
  4. Contextualization of Knowledge.

We will explore what each of these components entails and look at ways in which teachers from different faculties across the EUR are engaged in inclusive teaching practices.
