Why Inclusive Pedagogy?
Exposure to diversity leads to the development of complex thinking skills and learning integration, promotes ethical decision-making and the ability to work in a diverse society, and increases students’ capacity for social agency and citizenship. Students’ interactions and experiences with diverse perspectives in the classroom allow students to grow and gain valuable insights about themselves and others, increase perspective-taking skills, and fosters appreciation for diversity of experience and thought. Students often are able to develop identify and challenge previously held assumptions through the course content and materials presented in the classroom, shaped by engaging in classroom discussion and activities. The resources in this section offer strategies to promote inclusive excellence and improve the climate for learning for all students.
