Course Overview

In this professional development course for faculty and administrators, you will learn new strategies to 'listen-to' and teach diverse students. Your classroom is already diverse with a mix of students who have varying abilities, disabilities, cultural differences, and socio-economic backstories. An efficient and effective teacher can re-prioritize lessons to produce inclusive education. In this course, you will learn to see diversity as a living and breathing, 'learning opportunity' for all. Through story-listening you will uncover powerful narratives and become a change agent for the new reality of inclusion.

Each lesson in this course will include an instructional video followed by an activity and attached readings. Please complete all readings and activities for each lesson in the course. At the end of the course your work will be reviewed and if results are satisfactory you will receive a certificate of completion.
