Inclusive participation is a classroom participation paradigm. It indicates a combination of active listening—responding to and building on comments made by other students—as well as posing questions that invite other perspectives into the conversation.
Inclusive participation reflects and reinforces the dialogic classroom approach. This handout will guide students in a self-evaluation of how well the embodied inclusive participation in the classroom. Faculty might expect to students to report increasing levels of comfort with this type of engagement over the course of a semester.
