What is Inclusivity?

Inclusive teaching in higher education refers to the ways in which pedagogy, curricula and assessment are designed and delivered to engage students in learning that is meaningful, relevant and accessible to all. It embraces a view of the individual and individual difference as the source of diversity that can enrich the lives and learning of others.’ (Hockings, 2010)

At UoC we believe that quality teaching is our strength and we seek to develop an inclusive community where colleagues and students support and learn from each other creating an enriching environment. Inclusive learning and teaching is our moral and ethical responsibility and also a legal requirement.

On this page you will find links to two key documents enabling you to improve your inclusive practice and engage your students in their learning.

There is also a link to our Inclusive Practice PebblePad site where we have collected resources, case studies, examples and further reading to support your professional development.
