Inclusive Teaching Strategies

Inclusive teaching refers to practices that support meaningful and accessible learning for all students. Visit the University of Washington’s Center for Teaching and Learning, for a thoughtful outline on designing an inclusive course. Through five core practices, learning is enhanced by leveraging the diversity of experiences and perspectives found in every classroom.
