Establishing Differences between Diversity Requirements and Other Courses with Varying Degrees of Diversity Inclusivity
Nelson Laird, Thomas F.; Engberg, Mark E.
Journal of General Education, v60 n2 p117-137 2011
This study examines how diversity requirements differ from courses that are highly inclusive or less inclusive of diversity. Results suggest that instructor characteristics are statistically different and that highly inclusive and less inclusive diversity courses score highest and lowest, respectively, on measures of effective teaching compared with required diversity courses.
