inclusivity and diversity

  • Date: 04 April 2012
  • Time: 10:00 - 12:00
  • Location: 4SA.6.19
  • Target group: GTA
  • Trainer: Kate Dunton


“Each student is an individual having a unique learning history, personal culture, personality, and range of abilities and areas of difficulty. The expansion of higher education and a call for it to become more inclusive means that the student population is becoming increasingly more diverse. The challenge for the teaching assistant is how to respond appropriately to a range of individual needs and to maintain high academic standards. This session looks at the nature of diversity and how it can affect learning. It will help to raise your awareness of the barriers that can exclude students or hinder their learning, introduce you to some strategies for inclusive teaching, and inform you about the University's policy on wider participation, and of the specialist services that exist to both help your students directly and to support you in your role.
