Content

This unit focuses on developing and maintaining effective inclusive learning environments in higher education programs that are responsive to the many contemporary challenges impacting providers in Australia and internationally. It utilises a practice-oriented approach to explore the core knowledge and professional values that inform inclusive teaching and learning practice to create inclusive environments that afford safe and collaborative learning experiences for diverse learners and learning communities in higher education. The unit applies theories of curriculum design and higher education pedagogy to develop a deeper understanding of teaching practice in higher education, with a particular focus on the design of inclusive learning environments and programs, teaching for active learning, the effective use of digital tools to support learning, and the development of an evidence-informed reflective approach to improving practice and ongoing professional learning.
