SITI is designed by and for UTSA faculty and aims to rethink teaching and learning within the new realities we face today. The course explores ideas, best practices, and resources that instructors can incorporate into their course design and teaching strategies for different modalities and promotes student engagement using digital tools and Universal Design for Learning principles. The SITI course is also community-based, and you will have many opportunities to learn from and share ideas with your colleagues about the teaching practices you are learning. The course is structured into five modules:

Module 1: Explore the Foundations of Inclusive Teaching at UTSA
Module 2: Empower Faculty and Students through Inclusiveness
Module 3: Design Equity-Centered Pedagogy
Module 4: Implement Inclusiveness in All Learning Environments
Module 5: Become an Advocate for Inclusive Teaching

Each module includes handouts and templates, resources for deeper learning such as recent articles about instructional design, effective teaching and student success specifically focused on what you may be facing in your courses today. You will also participate in reflection activities with your cohort members to discuss concepts from each of the modules and share ideas and examples for different instructional modalities.
