Inclusive Pedagogy Academy

The Inclusive Pedagogy Academy is designed to bring participating faculty through the process of examining the institutional and cultural structures that impact the student experience in higher education. 

Participants learn how to increase the social belonging of students, embrace diversity in the classroom, provide useful feedback, and more—while focusing on improving equity in their discipline, department, and course.

Through examining these structures and exploring the variety of identities and experiences of students within our own institution, the IPA introduces ways to increase equitable outcomes in the classroom through a variety of interventions and methods.

Students are not hollow, waiting to be filled with my knowledge, but instead, bring with them prior attitudes and knowledge that are important to who they are and their understanding of the world around them.

During the IPA participants will:

  • Examine their own course data 
  • Make syllabus revisions
  • Practice equitable teaching techniques
  • Review their course messaging 
  • Revise their personal teaching statements

This academy is organized around seven outcomes and takes approximately seven weeks to complete.

Participants engage the academy material with a larger group of faculty from the university and are generally placed within a group of instructors from their own school, college, or department to discuss issues relevant to teaching within their field/subject.
