How Inclusive is my Subject? (HIIMS) is a new project at La Trobe University that is enabling more inclusion for students – by helping academics to pinpoint just how inclusive their classes are. It is an online professional development module for La Trobe staff that prompts them to reflect on various aspects of their subjects, including assessment, curriculum design, accessible learning resources, teaching, team/group work and more. Wendy Paulusz is lead content writer on the project and says HIIMS has been designed to be as easy and useful for staff to use as possible.  Read more about How Inclusive is my Subject? (HIIMS)
