“Inclusive Teaching” has become a buzzword in higher education within the last five years. Much of the research produced in relation to inclusive teaching has focused not only on the effectiveness of specific teaching strategies, but also on the ways in which instructors speak and relate to their students. In this workshop, the presenters will discuss how research defines inclusive teaching, as well as how language can create unnecessary barriers and challenges to student learning. Through group activities, real-life scenarios, and discussion, participants will reflect on the language they use in the classroom and identify strategies for effectively communicating their expectations to students.
