The challenge of inclusive higher education in the 21st century | Temple University

The scholarship of teaching and learning at the postsecondary level has enabled a consensus that the conventional methods of college teaching -- characterized at their simplest by full-session lectures, assigned readings and exercises from a textbook, and grading based primarily on two or three exams – simply do not work for a sizable number of students. Moreover, they often do a poor job of fostering some of the more sophisticated types of thinking and skills that our society expects of college graduates. To do justice to the many dimensions of diversity found among Temple students, especially, requires us to attend to two complementary realities: First, creating a learning environment that will be responsive to the interests, abilities, backgrounds, and needs of all students is a daunting challenge; and second, the presence of so many differences among the students in any given classroom creates rich opportunities not only for subject-matter learning, but for meaningful cognitive, social, and moral development as well.
