Presented by Melissa Hawkins. UAB has an incredibly diverse student body profile, in both visible and invisible categories of difference. Because we want to create learning environments throughout campus in which all students have a chance to acquire content from our courses and to be successful, the significance of this diversity in how we choose to teach should be recognized. Fortunately, there are fairly simple techniques teachers can incorporate that will make their instruction more effective for all types of learners.
In this session, participants will review both common and less-considered areas of student diversity on UAB’s campus. In addition, participants will review and discuss actions they can take to support great teaching in their classes—ideas that are not difficult to implement but will make a significant difference.
