Inclusive Teaching Guide

Main content start

Who is this guide for?

While we have curated this guide particularly with instructors, TAs, and staff in mind, we believe that anyone who supports student learning can benefit from understanding inclusive teaching practices.

We recommend that everyone who works with students view the Overview of Inclusive Teaching Practices page. Instructors and TAs may also further benefit from exploring specific topics within the guide.

What will you find?

This guide focuses on strategies that promote inclusion, diversity, accessibility, well-being, and community. It includes recommendations for fostering inclusive learning communities, links to student support services, tips for making course materials accessible, and methods for facilitating inclusive discussions.

We strongly believe that inclusive teaching practices are integral to and inseparable from good teaching practices. Truly inclusive teaching affects all aspects of a course and learning experience. While we chose to highlight this content in a separate guide, understand that these recommendations are meant to synergize and align with recommendations found across all of the Teaching Commons. 

How do you navigate the guide?

Use the menu on the left-hand side of the page to navigate through the various topics and content pages. If you are on a device with a small screen, use the menu icon in the upper-right corner of the page.
