Guiding principles for inclusive teaching

Guiding principles for an inclusive teaching practice support meeting the potential of every learner, within a ‘diversity of learners’.

The six principles for inclusive teaching

Six principles to support inclusive teaching.

Six principles have been developed as a result of extensive research and investigation around pedagogy and approaches that support inclusive teaching environments.

In particular, the work of Griffiths (2010) and Hockings (2010) in the UK and Devlin et al (2012) in the Australian context have been instrumental in the development of the principles, together with work carried out by the RMIT Inclusive Teaching Practices Working Party and the Inclusive Teaching and Assessment Practices Project.

These principles can be used:

  • As a guide when designing your practice to ensure it is inclusive.
  • As a tool to reflect on and refine your teaching.
