Brookes Learning and Teaching Exhibition and Conference 2021

Evaluation of the ‘Differences that make the Difference’ inclusive teaching guides

Dr Mary Kitchener, OCSLD

I will put together findings from a project facilitated by involvement with the Brookes Scholarship group. The differences that make the difference resources, available on the OCSLD Inclusive Curriculum webpages, were launched in June 2019 to support colleagues with suggestions about how they could enhance inclusive practices in their curriculum. There are ten guides available online to download: assessment, diversifying the curriculum, engaging students, feedback, belonging, group work, learning outcomes, lectures, seminars, technology. To ensure they are fit for practice, are useable and easily accessible, they were evaluated in 2021. Delegates will be presented with the findings, and the recommendations for adaptations and changes to current provision.
