What is inclusive teaching?
Inclusive teaching is about designing and delivering teaching and assessment methods that benefit all our students. If we integrate practices that enable students to engage with the content they can have more meaningful learning experiences which can help them achieve their full potential. There is no one way to be inclusive it requires us to keep reflecting on our teaching and adapting.
The UoL have a set of statements that are based on guidance from the Department for Education. These create a framework for reviewing our current practice and support for Student Education. As a university, we are committed to embedding these standards in all taught student education provision. The standards along with resources and support to help you make your teaching inclusive can be found by exploring the links below.
This digital resource includes written resources, student and staff testimonials, and information about how the University is aiming to embed inclusivity into all taught student education.
