Strategies for Promoting Equity in the College Classroom
Award-winning teachers offer practical tips for addressing inequities in the college classroom and for making all students feel welcome and included.
In a book written by and for college teachers, Kelly Hogan and Viji Sathy provide tips and advice on how to make all students feel welcome and included. They begin with a framework describing why explicit attention to structure enhances inclusiveness in both course design and interactions with and between students. Inclusive Teaching then provides practical ways to include more voices in a series of contexts: when giving instructions for group work and class activities, holding office hours, communicating with students, and more. The authors finish with an opportunity for the reader to reflect on what evidence to include in a teaching dossier that demonstrates inclusive practices.
The work of two highly regarded specialists who have delivered over a hundred workshops on inclusive pedagogy and who contribute frequently to public conversations on the topic, Inclusive Teaching distills state-of-the-art guidance on addressing privilege and implicit bias in the college classroom. It seeks to provide a framework for individuals and communities to ask, Who is being left behind and what can teachers do to add more structure?
Compelling and critical. Given the urgent need to promote justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion in our communities, the book is a must-read for all who are in a position to better support inclusive teaching inside and outside the classroom.’
An important and necessary contribution to the conversation about teaching that is happening now, both postpandemic and in the wake of ongoing protests about racism in our society. The overall tone is one of compassion and deep understanding of what teaching entails and how to make it better for both instructor and student.’
