In Class

Inclusive Curricular Design encompasses the key elements of multiple teaching and learning approaches to offer a robust and accessible learning experience for all students. The principles of inclusive curricular design focus on a proactive rather than reactive approach to course design and are founded in equity, collaboration, flexibility and accountability. This Certificate addresses the idea that students are not meant to fit into a traditional “one size fits all” model of education and that applying the principles of inclusive design will ensure that the range of student diversities, abilities, and needs arebeing met through a number of teaching and learning strategies.

The Certificate is comprised of nine learning modules, a coaching session, and a final application activity. Upon successful completion of these components, participants receive a Certificate of Completion.

This Certificate has been accredited by the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education(STLHE) - Educational Developers Caucus (EDC) of Canada to ensure quality in teaching and learning. For more information, please visit EDC Accreditation information.
