5 Dimensions of an Inclusive Classroom

October 10, 2018 (6:00 PM - 7:00 PM)

Time: 1PM-2PM EST Location:

Description: Students have diverse needs and abilities, come from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds, and use diverse tools and technologies to learn. Designing an inclusive learning experience for students requires that we think about the many different kinds of barriers that exclude students, and do our part to help ensure equitable and welcoming classrooms. Learn strategies and engage examples of how we have integrated aspects of inclusive pedagogy into our online courses, and how we are beginning to use Ally’s alternative formats for more flexible, inclusive content.
