Defining “Inclusive and Effective Teaching”

The TFELT definition of Inclusive and Effective Teaching reads as follows:

At the University of Missouri, effective and inclusive teaching fosters student learning through evidence-based, relevant, organized, and engaging instruction. Effective educators promote diversity by creating inclusive and equitable learning environments with instruction that is student-focused. Sustained teaching effectiveness requires continual refinement through deliberate reflection and professional development, and it is supported by institutional resources and programs.

Please note that elements of this definition are reflected directly in the various components of the accompanying model. The “pawprint model” consists of two distinct but interrelated sets of concepts: the Foundations and Dimensions of Inclusive and Effective Teaching.
