Assessing inclusive teaching practices: Is this working?

Published: September 23, 2022 Author: Staff reports

At the beginning of the Fall 2022 semester, the Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost and the Division of Diversity and Inclusion presented a half-day workshop on inclusive pedagogy. 

The Center for Teaching, Learning, and Assessment plans a session to review strategies and follow up with easy-to-implement assessment approaches that instructors might implement to understand if those new teaching approaches (or other teaching practices) worked. Instructors will share with one another a teaching practice they would like to assess and collaborate to determine what assessment approach would be most effective.

This session will take place from 4 to 5 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 28, virtually via Teams.

Following this session, participants will

  • Articulate at least three approaches to assessing effectiveness of inclusive teaching practices.
  • Identify two or three inclusive teaching practices they might implement during the remainder of the semester.
  • Explain the process of assessing, reflecting on and refining teaching practices.
  • Consider how course-level assessment of instructional practices might connect to programmatic assessment.
