Traditionally math courses focus on technical competence for engineering students. We believe leadership and management skills are essential for future engineers and the broader student body, so we investigated a set of practices that stem from principles of inclusive course design, and discovered that these elements not only help making the course more accessible, they also trained our students to master skills that are critical for them to develop leadership and management competencies such as community building, problem solving with others, listening, self-regulation and empathy.


I will share inclusive course design ideas that focus on community building, and nurturing students’ leadership and management competencies.
