Trinity-INC Professional Learning Module on Inclusive Practices in Teaching and Learning

Trinity-INC Professional Learning Module on Inclusive Practices in Teaching and Learning - begins 20th April 2022. This Module is now underway. To take part in future roll-outs (next - October 2022), contact trinityinc@tcd.ie

This Professional Learning Module is targeted to the needs of academic staff and all those who support teaching and learning at Trinity. The Module is grounded in the principles of Universal Design for Learning ('UDL'). These principles are explored and used as a point of entry to identify wider strategies for enhancing inclusive practice in teaching and learning. The Module is not intended to provide 'one' way of doing inclusion in your own teaching context. It suggests that inclusive practice is adaptive, iterative, and highly contextual. We hope the module offers you a space to reflect on your own teaching and consider new or enhanced teaching elements that can be easily adapted for use in your own practice.

The Module is partially self-directed, supported through peer engagement. Live webinars led by members of the Trinity-INC Team and supported by experts in this field, are held at the beginning, middle and end of the Module and are intended to enable you to come together in a community of practice in live time to share practices and experiences from your own contexts. While there is added value in attend the webinars, they will be recorded for those unable to attend. The Module is inherently flexible in order to help you manage its commitments around your other life and professional commitments. A final 'light touch' assignment involves a short reflection upon your learning and one change you will make to your teaching practice.

The Module is tailored to the Trinity context, modelled on the National Forum for Teaching and Learning, AHEAD and UCD Digital Badge in Universal Design for Learning. Those who complete the module are eligible to claim the Digital Badge.
