Our Inclusive Practice community has drawn together a range of resources to make the curriculum, teaching and learning practice, and assessment more inclusive and accessible.
To enable you to find relevant information easily the site is divided up into sections:
- Principles: This sets out a set of principles which underpin the University’s approach to Inclusive Practice.
- Law and Policies: This section outlines the legal context and the University’s duties. It also provides links to the University’s Policies and frameworks related to Inclusive Practice.
- FAQs: A series of frequently asked questions about Inclusive Practice.
- Curriculum Design: The section provides overviews and links to inclusive curriculum design resources developed by the sector.
- Teaching & Learning: This section is split to eight sub-sections focusing on the following: Checklists and Tips; Inclusive Practice Guides; Disabled Students; International Students; Mature Students; LGBT Students; Social and Cultural Diversity and Guidelines for Inclusive and Accessible Materials.
- Assessment: This section brings together practical guides and resources, developed by institutions and projects within the Higher Education sector, which focus on making assessments accessible and inclusive students.
- Work Placements: This section focuses on the issues which need to be considered when students with learning contracts take-up work placements.
