Pedagogy — the practice of teaching — is a critical component of addressing these barriers to learning and acknowledging the structural and systemic biases that affect our students. Much of what we’ve already discussed in Access, Design, and Relationship are principles or strategies of inclusive pedagogy. There are countless frameworks out there to help guide inclusive teaching pedagogy. Marchesani and Adams (1992) articulated a framework for teaching inclusively that includes knowledge of four elements:

  • Instructor: Build your self-knowledge. Understand your own social identities.
  • Students: Know who your students are and their lived experiences and backgrounds. Use that knowledge intentionally to enrich the learning experience for all students.
  • Course Content: The what of teaching. Intentionally consider whose voices and scholarship we privilege in our disciplines.
  • Teaching Methods: the how of teaching. Be purposeful to include all your learners in your course's activities, conversations, and assessments.
