Receive assistance in creating more inclusive classroom instruction through Inclusive Pedagogy Seminar. This program is offered in May. 

The seminar, open to all Ball State University faculty, is four two-hour meetings over eight days with “homework” between each meeting. Participants produce plans for innovations they will implement during the subsequent academic year.
