Welcome to Trinity Inclusive Curriculum (TIC)

The mission of Trinity Inclusive Curriculum (TIC) is to guide all staff in the employment of inclusive principles so as to create an inclusive and enabling learning environment in Trinity College Dublin.

In supporting Trinity's overall mission to enhance the student experience, and in line with the strategic aims of increasing diversity, internationalisation and inclusiveness, TIC aims to embed inclusiveness within all the activities of Trinity College Dublin.

TIC offers a range of guidelines, templates and resources to enable staff to embed inclusive principles within their teaching and assessment practices:

What are TIC's Principles ?

Inclusive Curriculum follows the principles of universal design for learning to respond to the varied 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.

Clear communication and flexibility are central to inclusive teaching and assessment practices, and inclusion can be achieved by following five steps (MS Word, 137 kB )

Through this, all students, particularly those from non-traditional backgrounds, can participate more fully in academic life.
