Inclusive Curriculum follows the principles of universal design for instruction to respond to the needs of a diverse student population, where students come from differing social and cultural backgrounds.
It aims to break down barriers to learning by providing a range of teaching and assessment methods, thus allowing all students to work to their strengths.

Through this, all students can participate more fully in academic life.
Trinity Inclusive Curriculum has created an Inclusive Curriculum Resource Website to help College enhance inclusion. If you are a post-graduate who teaches you may find this particularly useful.
Student feedback is vital when working to enhance inclusion.
Have you experienced a particularly good teaching method? Do you have suggestions on how to improve the student experience?
If so we would like to hear from you.
Many thanks for taking the time to offer feedback
