Adaptive Teaching for Inclusion

In this section you’ll find a range of writing and think pieces to inform continuous discourse on inclusive teaching.

It builds on trainee teachers’ prior knowledge and experiences and actively engages in rich tasks that help achieve conceptual understanding and transferable knowledge and skills.

It sets the platform for a blended approach of theory and practice. Adopting inquiry as a major learning strategy, this resource thoughtfully interweaves explicit instruction and well-scaffolded opportunities to practice and apply learning.

Trainees are encouraged to maintain a reflective log as they engage with the resources across the site.
