The Inclusive Practice Project ran in Scotland from 2006-10 and involved developing teacher education for working in diverse classrooms. Through the project, the principle of Inclusive Pedagogy was elaborated.

Unlike other pedagogical responses to learner diversity, Inclusive Pedagogy starts with a commitment to ‘extending what is ordinarily available for all learners rather than using teaching and learning strategies that are suitable for most alongside something ‘additional’ or ‘different’ for some who experience difficulties’(Black-Hawkins and Florian 2012, p. 575). 

In this video, Tracy Edwards (PhD Researcher at Leeds Beckett University and the University of Aberdeen) will explore ways in which Inclusive Pedagogy might be implemented by teachers, as well as the implications of the idea as a “subtle but profound shift in thinking”

  • How might you “extend what is ordinarily available to all pupils” within your own classroom?
  • Can you think of a time where learning something new about your own pupils challenged any assumptions or stereotypes you were holding in relation to them?
