“Knowing who your students are, as a group and as individuals, is an important part of good teaching. In recent years, higher education in general, and USC in particular, have become increasingly diverse. The variety of students is far greater, and their needs are very different, than in the past.
This module will consider how to teach effectively in an environment of diverse learners. If you wish to facilitate the learning process of students with a variety of backgrounds and needs, the following points are important:
- Treat all students as individuals with unique strengths, weaknesses, and needs rather than as generalized representatives of particular racial, ethnic or cultural groups.
- Employ a variety of teaching styles to respond to the needs of diverse learners.
- Create an open classroom that values the experiences and perspectives of all students.”
