Creating an Inclusive Classroom Environment
Schedule: Thursday, November 30, 2017, 01:00 PM – 02:30 PM
Location: Lambton 2103
Instructors: Christine Quaglia
Workshop participants will have an opportunity to discuss the roles of mindfulness, consciousness, awareness and compassion, and how these things can be incorporated to create an inclusive classroom environment. As we become more mindful and compassionate towards others, inclusion is fostered and principles of Universal Instructional Design (UID) make manifest. While we will explore basic principles of UID, we will look most closely at the intentions behind those principles and how inclusivity is made possible with the fostering of awareness.
