Inclusive Teaching at RMIT

Meeting the potential of every learner within 'a diversity of learners'

As a global university, RMIT students come with a diverse range of backgrounds, learning needs, prior experiences, values, beliefs and aspirations. 

Underpinned by theories of Universal Design, student-centred learning and inclusive pedagogies, the Principles and Strategies for Inclusive Teaching have been developed to support teaching staff to design, deliver and assess across a diverse student cohort.
