Inclusive Education Series 2021-2022 Registration

Department of Physical Therapy

Facilitators: Robin Sutherland-Harris


In this education series, we will explore different strategies that support students with diverse experiences and backgrounds to succeed in higher education.  This series is intended for faculty involved in teaching in the Rehab Sector. 

Rethinking Assessment

Online Course, May 2-June 3, 2022.

Assessment is powerful. Through it we can not only determine how well students are learning, we can also gather information that helps us update and improve our teaching. Assessment can also inform students as they become self-directed and reflective life-long learners.  Yet thoughtful, inclusive, and effective assessment design and practice are challenging! Take advantage of this opportunity for supported, dedicated, and well-resourced time to rethink and rework your assessments. Participants will learn by doing as they make practical, concrete steps towards updating an existing assessment, revising a course-wide assessment strategy, or designing assessments from scratch. All work in this course is informed by pedagogical best practices for inclusive, equitable, and accessible assessment, whether online, face-to-face, or blended.

This course is open to all who teach in the Health Professions at the University of Toronto, and will require roughly eight hours of participant time over four weeks.

Teaching teams are welcome to register and work together in this course. See the registration form for more details.
