Author
  • Jonathan Webb (Iowa State University)

Abstract

Inclusive curriculum and pedagogy are conceptualized as tools for teaching, learning, engagement and action to cultivate a culture of diversity awareness on campus. The overall goal is to transform the academic curriculums across higher education into inclusive, empowering, and equitable tools that promote retention and student success. Participants from a variety of disciplines will discuss the meaning of inclusive curriculum and pedagogy and their own experiences and narratives around diversity and inclusion in the curriculum and classroom. Through an interactive format, presenters and audience members will collaboratively generate strategies. The audience will learn tools to make the classroom a place in which integrity, mutual respect, and academic excellence are valued and promoted for students and faculty of all identities and backgrounds, despite their many differences.
