Inclusive Teaching (ILT006)


This course addresses ways of teaching and supporting learning which take into account the diversity of the student body – this includes students’ disability, ethnicity, religious belief, age and other characteristics. The course explores a variety of potential scenarios to develop teaching skills, and provides information about both the legal responsibilities of the University and the services available to students.

Please note that this course is open to all but is aimed at UK-based participants; the legislation and contexts are different in a non-British environment, such as e.g. our Dubai campus.

Learning Outcomes

  • Consider what is meant by inclusivity, equality and diversity
  • Be aware of the legal context and duties
  • Explore ways of supporting diversity
  • Know where students within the University can go to access support

What participants have told us:

- "I felt that this was to the point and covered all the important aspects".

- "It raised very interesting issues that I hadn't thought about".

- "This course increased my awareness, while also providing 'real-case' tips".

Format and Requirements

All our courses are available on-line, so that you can take them at a time that suits you, from wherever you are based, and will have access to the materials throughout  your time at the UoB.

You are required to spend up to three hours working through an ILT. Your participation will only be registered after you completed the course, and you have actively contributed to the discussion task. Your deadline is the end of the month that you have been registered. If you were registered in the last week of a month, then the end of the next month is your deadline. Each academic year you will be able to participate in our ILT courses from the beginning of September until the end of June. 

Note that we have aimed to make the Canvas courses as accessible as possible but that we will also be happy to provide material in alternative formats; just let us know what you need.
