Inclusive Teaching and Assessment

Inclusive teaching means recognising, accommodating and meeting the learning needs of all students. Increasingly, third level institutions in Ireland and abroad are looking at ways of opening up the curriculum and making education more inclusive for people with disabilities. Often the style of teaching and assessment on a particular programme may inadvertently exclude some people with disabilities, who would otherwise participate in that programme. While maintaining academic standards, alterations can be made to both the delivery of course content and methods of assessment.
Please refer to the Universal Design for Learning Guidelines and the DAWN Handbook for best practice advice on supporting all students taking your classes.
