Teacher development training for an inclusive classroom
Abstract / پوختە / الملخص :
Different generations of students have enrolled and graduated from higher education institutions for decades. Although each new generation of students we teach requires different teaching and learning strategies. Throughout these decades, educators have been using the same strategies despite what generation is present in their classrooms. With generational changes, this means that educators are not meeting students’ needs. Thus, it is pertinent to reflect on and reevaluate teaching methods to create the best learning environment for students. The newer generation of students, Generation Z and Alpha, have unique characteristics and expectations. Inclusive teaching requires teachers to recognize the experiences and abilities of every student, embrace the idea that each student’s learning capacity is open-ended, and be open to diversity. Right now, our Generation Z and Alpha students present a unique set of challenges for educators. They are even more diverse than the previous ones. In addition to their racial and ethnic makeup, they also differ in work behaviors, shaped by values and economic circumstances, very different from those of the generations that preceded them. To reach them teachers must be empowered agents of change, with values, knowledge, and attitudes that permit every student to succeed.
