Inclusive Pedagogy • Four Quotes (October 2019)

October 31, 2019

“Classes are not always a space where students feel like they can be present and learn.  What inclusive teaching ideally does is foster an environment where students feel like what they bring to the class is an asset, not a limitation.”     Jenae Cohn (jenaecohn.net 07.24.19)

“Inclusive teaching is…a realization that traditional pedagogical methods—traditionally applied—have not served all of our students well.”     Kevin Gannon (Chronicle of Higher Education 02.28.18)

“Faculty, before we say that a student doesn’t ”have what it takes” to be successful…let’s make sure that our classes…actually ‘have what it takes’ for every student to perform at their best.”     Jen Heemstra  (Twitter @jenheemstra 01.23.19)

“When…trust drives the teaching process, great things can happen in the classroom.  Inclusive pedagogies turn the focus of the experience on the student, the uniqueness of their contexts and ultimately our individual ability to extract excellence from them regardless of background.”     Bryan Dewsbury (Scientific American 01.23.18)
