practical tips for teachers to promote accessible and inclusive education

07 April 2020

This guide contains a number of practical tips for teachers to promote accessible and inclusive education. It has been compiled by ECIO, the Dutch expert centre on inclusive education, for and with students with special needs, in consultation with teachers from the higher education sector. Like many of their colleagues, these teachers strive to provide their students with a good-quality education and set high standards for themselves. To them, a focus on diverse teaching is essential. At the same time, they agree that what works for few students, works for all. It is usually the case that all students benefit from these tips, not just students with special needs.

The tips concern four different activities:

  1. Preparing a lecture and teaching
  2. Supervising tutorial groups
  3. Supervising students
  4. Administering assessments and exams

The tips for these activities are described on two levels:

  • Curriculum design and preparation
  • Education in practice
