Intentionally Including Student Perspectives in Teaching and Learning
During the 2022-23 Academic year, the Teaching Commons hosted a group of students completing a practicum placement as part of a fourth year educational studies course. They spent their time together developing the content and interface of an interactive book about equity, decolonization, diversity, inclusion, and accessibility (EDDIA), using universal design for learning as a framework for implementing EDDIA. This resource encourages educators to reflect on how to enhance student learning by including principles EDDIA within the classroom. This resource curates knowledge about EDDIA and UDL, explains why they are important, and proposes ways to incorporate strategies into educational practices to elevate their learning environments.
