Inclusive Teaching & Learning Supports

The CTL is committed to advancing accessibility, equity, inclusion, and diversity in teaching and learning.

In working towards this goal, we hired two Education Consultants for Inclusion in early 2021 and are currently in the process of creating evidence-based resources that will support our campus community in designing and delivering inclusive teaching and learning practices.

CTL Educational Consultants for Inclusion can assist you with:

  • Developing and assessing course design, curriculum, and educational resources for accessibility and inclusive practices;
  • Designing, facilitating, and evaluating professional development programs, workshops, and educational programs on topics related to inclusion and accessibility;
  • Strategies and approaches to enable productive conversations around socially contentious issues that arise in teaching and learning environments;
  • Feedback on inclusive teaching practices through classroom (virtual or in-person) observation.
