Curriculum Design

Institutions must design their curriculum to promote success among all students, looking at students’ educational, cultural, and social backgrounds and experiences, as well as physical or sensory impairments and mental well-being. The college takes pride in its commitment to equality in learning and teaching.

What are we doing about it?

The College of Education is conducting research on:

  • STEM curriculum design for visually impaired students at the Arizona School for the Deaf and Blind to increase pathways for these students
  • Practice-based experiences in classrooms, field-work, lab work, and internships in academic settings for students from a variety of diverse backgrounds (first-generation, low SES, ethnic, racial, and international populations, people with disabilities, LGBTQ)
  • Asset-based curriculum
  • Ethnic studies, whiteness studies
