about

How should you prepare for the first day of class? How can you encourage all students to participate in discussions? How do you ensure disabled students can take part in field work? Increasingly, universities are drawing from a less traditional group of students ¿ international students, disabled students, part time students, and mature students. This book offers specific, practical advice on the issues that teachers encounter when teaching in a diverse classroom. Inclusion and Diversity highlights good practice for all students, and provides a helpful structure around the day-to-day experiences of staff and students as they make contact with each other. With reference to the international literature, and discussing some of the educational principles that underpin an inclusive curriculum, this book covers a wide range of useful topics so that teachers will have quick access to guidelines on different aspects of teaching and learning:

    • small and large group teaching
    • e-learning
    • work placements
    • students¿ lives out of the classroom
    • personal tutoring
    • skills agenda
    • assessment
    • employability and further study

Addressing a range of themes, including student age, ethnicity, disability, sexuality and gender, this book aids all practitioners in higher education today ¿ particularly those new lecturers meeting their students for the first time ¿ to develop a better understanding of the issues involved in teaching a diverse range of students.
