Promoting inclusiveness and participation in higher education: Teaching strategies for the (digital) classroom

Tyll Zybura | 11.05.2023 | 09:00 h (s.t.) - 17:00 h | X-E1-107

This Workshop has been cancelled.

The current discourse about inclusiveness (used here in a broader sense than we usually use the technical term ‘inclusion’), participation and social equity in education often revolves around which technologies enable effective (digital) teaching and accessibility. In this workshop we will instead look at the interpersonal and social levels of promoting participation in higher education.

To help you promote an inclusive teaching-learning relationship in your classes, I will convey mindsets and strategies for power-sensitive communication, needs orientation, and dehierarchization as important elements of accessible and participatory teaching. We will reflect on our own privileges in our position as teachers and develop principles and simple scripts for sensitively dealing with different living and learning conditions of our students in order to strengthen the social inclusiveness of our teaching.

Participants will learn a variety of strategies and scripts for needs-based and appreciative communication with learners in the (digital) seminar, methods for collaborative seminar design, low-threshold techniques for promoting participation, as well as methods for establishing the seminar as a shared social space.


Workshop trainer: Tyll Zybura is a speaker and author for, a project for the promotion of relationship-rich practices in higher education. He teaches seminars in education science and cultural studies, and he practices as a solution-focused coach.
