Inclusive Teaching and Learning at the Tertiary Level: Approaches to Enhanced Accessibility for Learners with Special Education Needs
Elna Carrington-Blaides, Karen Sanderson-Cole and Nadia Laptiste-Francis
The main objectives of this paper are to examine modes that have traditionally underpinned the teaching of foundation courses and move from there to consider pedagogical issues raised by Universal Design for Learning and Differentiated Instruction as two specific approaches that pinpoint areas in which avenues for creating a more inclusive learning environment within language teaching at the tertiary level can be conceived. Secondly, we suggest various modes of presentation which are useful for students with various types of exceptionalities.
