Inclusive Teaching at Keele

Disability Support and Inclusive Teaching and Assessment 

A collaborative project between Disability and Dyslexia Support (DDS) and the Learning and Professional Development Centre (LPDC) which aims to:

  • Raise awareness about the ways in which different disabilities may affect students during their time at university and the barriers learners may face in learning and teaching environments;
  • Increase staff understanding about how to design and deliver inclusive learning and teaching environments, activities, resources and assessments; and,
  • Champion the wider benefits of an inclusive teaching approach for all students.

The links below provide a series of documents with strategies and tips for making your teaching practices more inclusive.

Staff training module
‘Introduction to Inclusive Learning & Teaching’ is a digital resource and training module for Keele staff. The course provides vital professional development to all colleagues who wish to develop their teaching practice. Staff can find out more and complete the course via the Keele Learning Pool.
