Inclusive course design anticipates a diversity of learning styles and abilities without lowering academic standards. Students do not occupy separate categories - has a disability, does not have a disability - so much as fall along a continuum of diversity. Good course design caters for this by providing a range of learning opportunities.
Inclusive curricula meet the learning needs of all students, not just those with disability. Curricula should be designed to be as accessible as possible, so that only minimal adjustments need to be made to respond to the needs of individual students. Core elements of the course should be clearly stated, so that it is easier to determine what adjustments can be made without compromising academic integrity.
