Inclusive Pedagogy is Fundamental to Good Teaching

Session Overview

This video was part of the July 2021 REMOTE: The Connected Faculty Summit

Since the inception of our Teaching Effectiveness Framework (TEF) in 2018, we have supported faculty in making an intentional shift to using evidence-based teaching practices from the TEF domains: classroom climate, student motivation, feedback and assessment, pedagogical content knowledge, curriculum and alignment, instructional strategies, and inclusive pedagogy. The pivot to remote learning in 2020 made apparent Inclusive Pedagogy as fundamental to all domains of the framework and student success.
