As higher education moves toward an expectation of effective learner-centered teaching of all students, it is imperative that universities, colleges, departments, and programs offer appropriate training in and practice of evidence-based, inclusive instructional strategies for their faculty, staff, and graduate/professional students. In this symposium, participants will learn about innovative strategies and programs to theoretically and experientially develop faculty and future faculty in best practice teaching. Additionally, participants will learn how to create an educational environment in which all students feel valued and have equal access to learn.
