Inclusive Instruction and Design for Health Science Lectures
Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
Faculty members wholeheartedly engaged in teaching are dedicated to utilizing instructional methods that best help students achieve learning outcomes. Inclusive instruction derives from Universal Design principles as applied to education: Course design and instruction should be planned strategically to ensure students from diverse backgrounds can fully access the course curriculum. Whereas accommodations are prescriptive, specifically tailored to support the needs of each individual, the intentional and anticipatory design of UD aims to meet the varied needs of all students. As courses are designed, deliberate choices can be made to prevent barriers imposed by a “one size fits all” instructional model.
