Inclusive Teaching Community of Practice


The purpose of our Community of Practice is creating a safe, brave, vulnerable, empowering, supportive space in which people can share practices, literature and lived experience related to inclusive teaching and Universal Design for Learning (UDL). We invite anyone interested in inclusive teaching, no matter how much experience or knowledge you have on inclusive teaching frameworks. This is a place to learn together.

What to expect

This community is a welcoming group of folks from across campus who are interested in inclusive teaching and Universal Design for Learning. In our meetings, we share our own practices, successes, and failures, provide support to each other, share resources, and learn together. Typically, we have some community building activities, a discussion question or two, and opportunities for folks to share. You will be invited to participate in whatever way is comfortable for you in the session. Currently, we are meeting for 1 hour a month.
