Teaching for Inclusion in Higher Education: A Guide to Practice

Teaching for Inclusion Guide

These interactive materials were developed by Sandra Griffiths, visiting Senior Research Fellow, who worked on this project in the Centre for Educational Development. The Guide is based on Sandra’s research conducted as a UK National Teaching Fellow and it is also a fulfilment of a lifetime’s interest. Sandra has had a commitment to inclusive education for many years and has taught in higher education, community education, further education and women’s education – she was a pioneer in developing courses to help women returners back into education.  As well as working at Queen’s and the University of Ulster, Sandra has worked with groups in Australia, Pakistan and a number of Middle Eastern and eastern European countries. She also has major publications on peer learning, students with disabilities and small group teaching.

Purpose of the Resource

This pack is aimed at any member of staff in higher education who is interested in improving their teaching and enhancing student inclusion, success and learning. It has been designed to be used flexibly by different staff groups and individuals. New and relatively inexperienced teachers in higher education and any member of staff engaged in the support of student learning will find it particularly relevant to their needs. It has been written bearing in mind staff undertaking university programmes which lead to an award in teaching or academic practice. It contains practical advice on making teaching, learning and assessment inclusive and contains video clips of staff sharing their thoughts on the topic.
