Inclusive Learning through Scaffolding and Flexible Pedagogy
VALE/ACRL-NJ/NJLA-CUS Users’ Conference (2020)
  • Andrea Baer, Rowan University
Although scaffolding is often seen as a linear and process in which students progress from one stage to another, librarians know first-hand that learning is a messier process, with starts and stops, circling back, relearning, and sometimes the need for unlearning. Moreover, students’ learning needs differ – some benefit from more structure, while others may work best with more open-endedness. Scaffolding that fosters inclusive learning is therefore ideally flexible and responsive to student needs. Participants in this interactive session will explore how scaffolding and flexible pedagogy can work in tandem in their instructional work and how it can foster more inclusive learning environments.
