Inclusive teaching and learning
Inclusion is a feeling of belonging. To the group, to the environment. Inclusive teaching and learning engage students in learning that is meaningful, relevant and accessible to all. It embraces individual differences as a source of diversity that can enrich the lives and learning of others.
This area deals with methods by which curricula are taught, materials and activities used to support learning and by class cultures shaped by student and staff interactions. For teaching staff it is highly important to get to know the students, their learning prerequisites, experiences, interests and aspirations. Ideally, materials, resources and examples provided positively embrace the diversity of student backgrounds. Learning is student-centered and interactive.
