Inclusive Pedagogy and curricula

Educators have an important role in ensuring that all of their students feel included and empowered to do well with their studies. However, higher education is often not designed to support those with diverse needs and this can be exacerbated at doctoral level. In this talk, we will discuss some of the ways that physics higher education can better support students through inclusive pedagogy. In particular, we will explore the concept of universal design for learning and how peer support networks can empower doctoral students in physics.
