We developed the "Who's in Class?" form with the major goals of increasing instructors': (1) awareness of their learners' diverse attributes and identities, and (2) implementation of inclusive teaching practices. This article provides an overview of the tool in addition to feedback from instructors who used the form, and their students' perspectives. Instructors taught a variety of courses at the undergraduate and master's levels. They implemented the form during the COVID-19 pandemic for either in-person courses that abruptly switched to remote, fully online courses (synchronous or asynchronous), or hybrid flexible courses. After reviewing students' responses on the form, instructors mostly focused on improving their classroom climates in addition to modifying their teaching practices. Both instructors and students reported benefits from the usage of the tool.
