Course Design for Equity and Inclusion is a webinar ONLY – please do not come to the CTE office.
Research highlights how course design affects students’ learning experiences and overall success. In this workshop, we will discuss best practices for designing an equitable and inclusive course to increase the opportunity for diverse learners to fully participate in the learning environment. Feel free to bring your syllabus as a reference to implement at least one strategy to make your course more inclusive and equitable.
