Increasingly, contemporary classrooms are characterised by multiple forms of diversity among learners. Effective teachers are responsive to this diversity as they facilitate inclusive learning environments and enable all students to access quality curriculum in a variety of ways. In this topic, students will engage with key principles underlying differentiation for diverse learners and examine inclusive practices across a range of contexts. Students will synthesise and build upon their understanding of individual and group differences in learning and development, and environments that support learning, as they critically examine the rationale for differentiating curriculum. They will consider the teacher's role in assisting individuals with special educational needs to engage with curriculum and they will further develop their skills in the design of curriculum and assessment to support learning for all students.
This topic aims to help students:
deepen their understanding of diverse learners and educational contexts
appreciate the interdependence between learning environments, curriculum, instruction, assessment and student engagement and learning
develop knowledge and skills related to differentiating curriculum and instruction to maximise learning for all students
understand and manage the complexities of a flexible, responsive, and inclusive learning environment
Expected learning outcomes
In completing this topic, students are expected to:
articulate a rationale for differentiation based on knowledge of learner differences, inclusive practice and effective pedagogy
demonstrate understanding of key principles of effective differentiation and how these may be reflected in a range of educational practices
design differentiated learning tasks suitable for a range of students within a diverse classroom, in the context of one or more curriculum areas
incorporate appropriate technologies into a differentiated learning task in order to facilitate students' access to curriculum
evaluate specific lesson plans, learning tasks and/or classroom scenarios in relation to key principles of effective differentiation
reflect upon the experience of implementing a differentiated learning task in order to identify factors that can facilitate or impede effective differentiation in different contexts
