Learning to Teach Inclusively – a multi media
open access module for HE staff
This project will deliver a 30 credit
‘tailor-able’ module entitled ‘teaching inclusively’
that may be taken by teaching and support staff as
part of an accredited professional development programme.
The module will reflect four key areas of
inclusive practice (curriculum design, curriculum delivery,
assessment and management) highlighted in the Academy’s synthesis
of the research in inclusive L&T (Hockings
2010). Our overarching aim in developing this module,
its units and the Open Educational Resources (OER) is to facilitate
the development of inclusive practitioners across the sector and to
enhance the academic engagement of all students.
OERs are defined as learning materials
and activities that are freely available to be used, changed and
redistributed these might include video clips, PowerPoint
slides, photographs and other media.
The online module will be accessible to
all HEIs through Open
Learn, the Open University website which gives free
access to OU course materials. It will comprise 3
individual units, accessible as a whole, individually or as
combination of units, according to individual training and
development needs. These units will include:
Each unit will link directly to a new and existing body of OERs
(including video clips of authentic inclusive teaching) located in
JorumOpen. HEIs can access,
tailor, reuse and add to the module, its units and the repository
of inclusive OERs.
These resources will illustrate inclusive learning, teaching and
assessment practice across the subject range (science, technology,
humanities, arts and social sciences) from academic to professional
and vocational courses, and set within different learning
environments (large and small group, practical and laboratory
setting, field study, work based). In addition there will be
extracts from video interviews with staff and students
participating in these teaching sessions and with support staff and
professionals, such as those working with specific groups of
students (e.g. disabled, international).
