With some grant support, the Center for Teaching and Learning at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill created Teaching for Inclusion to promote multicultural understanding within the university community. The authors give permission to other campuses to distribute copies, and we would like to give a copy to you.
This practical handbook focuses on how to create an inclusive learning environment for all students and how to avoid common mistakes when dealing with students who are unlike ourselves. Chapters are dedicated to students who vary in learning style, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, origin, religion, political beliefs, age, and ability. Points are illustrated with transcripts from student interviews, giving us the opportunity to hear university experiences and advice from a diverse array of students.
