“Strengths-oriented teaching represents a paradigm shift for many instructors. Rather than focusing on students’ deficits and attempting to remediate them, strengths-oriented teaching recognizes the talents students bring to the learning environment and uses those talents as the foundation for learning – and for addressing academic challenges. Strengths-oriented teachers, above all else, believe their students are capable of learning under the right conditions and attempt to create those conditions in their classrooms.”
Laurie A. Schreiner, Strengths-Oriented Teaching, 2014
The INCLUDE program aims to integrate awareness and appreciation of student strengths into advising, instruction, and course design. Courses that are part of the INCLUDE program (I-Courses) will feature multiple modes of teaching, learning, and assessment and will provide ways for students to personalize their learning to use their strengths for success. I-Courses are being piloted during the Fall 2020 semester.
