for teaching and learning
Recommendation #1: Get ideas from the Guidelines for Inclusive Teaching (currently only in German) by the University of Graz oder from Teaching Beyond the Gender Binary at the Vanderbilt University (USA). Both are to be found on the left here.
Recommendation #2: Explicate your diversity-sensible and inclusive approach, at best in your syllabus. It could read like this or similar (thanks to Simone Adams):
If you have any need for accommodations during the semester because of learning differences, religious holidays/practices, physical requirements or medical needs, please speak to me at the beginning of the semester in order to make appropriate arrangements. If you have questions or concerns about class work, please contact me any time by email or speak to me in person before or after class.
Disability and Diversity Statement:
My goal is to create learning environments that are useable, equitable, inclusive and welcoming. If there are aspects of the instruction or design of this course that result in barriers to your inclusion or accurate assessment or achievement, I invite any student to meet with me to discuss additional strategies beyond accommodations that may be helpful to your success. If you need assistance beyond what I can provide, I encourage you to contact the Zentrum Integriert Studieren and the Psychologische Studierendenberatung.
