In essence, inclusive teaching means teaching in ways that do not exclude learners, accidentally or intentionally, from opportunities to learn. By inclusive we mean valuing the contribution of learners regardless of their backgrounds and value systems. It is not about providing ‘remedial’ or ‘special’ measures for certain groups of learners.
Florian and Black-Hawkins (2010) describe their conceptualization of inclusive pedagogy:
Our conceptualization of inclusive pedagogy focuses on how to extend what is ordinarily available in the community of the classroom as a way of reducing the need to mark some learners as different. This is underpinned by a shift in pedagogical thinking from an approach that works for most learners existing alongside something ‘additional’ or ‘different’ for those (some) who experience difficulties, towards one that involves providing rich learning opportunities that are sufficiently made available for everyone, so that all learners are able to participate in classroom life.
