Teaching for Inclusive Learning
The pilot BEL+T Sessional Session took place on Wednesday April 10. The focus was on Teaching for Inclusive Learning and it was terrific to share a focus and ideas with staff who are teaching, and supporting teaching and students, as well as student representatives.
These discussions are directly relevant to the delivery of great teaching within our Faculty, as well as to key initiatives at the University including the Belonging to Melbourne : Enhancing Student Life and Success green paper currently under discussion. The focus of the evening also relates strongly to a number of the themes within Great Teaching @ ABP on the BEL+T site and additional resources and links are included below.
The BEL+T Teaching for Inclusive Learning panel and participants explored issues that can impact student experiences of inclusion, moving beyond ‘deficit models’ in these discussions, and teaching approaches that can build participation and engagement across a cohort.
Please find some of the resources that informed our discussions below :
- Summary of Inclusive Teaching Challenges and Opportunities
- Christine Hockings - Inclusive Learning and Teaching in Higher Education
- Student Equity and Disability Support - Advice for Teaching Staff
- Presentation slides
