Fostering Inclusive Learning Climates

Integrating Students’ Experiential Learning into Your Classroom

Just as we want our students to use what they learned in the classrooms in their off-campus experiential learning activities, we can also help them draw upon their experiential learning memories when they return to campus, enriching the classroom experience for everyone. Here are some strategies.

Teaching a Dialogue of Civilizations Course

Teaching a Dialogue of Civilizations course is a wonderful opportunity, but can be a daunting prospect for a first-timer. To support new Dialogue instructors, the Center for Advancing Teaching and Learning Through Research and the Global Experience Office partnered to generate integrate advice from experienced Dialogue instructors and support from learning science literature. Here are their strategies.

Flipped and Hybrid Course Design

In a traditional class, students acquire content in class via lecture, and do the more difficult work of applying that material on homework assignments outside of class  “Flipping” a class reverses this:  organizing materials and accountability structures so students can acquire basic content outside of class, and work together on application activities in-class.  Hybrid courses do much the same, but with fewer face-to-face meetings.  Here are some strategies for designing flipped or hybrid courses.
