Inclusive Design for Learning: Creating Flexible and Adaptable Content with Learners
Globally, children with disabilities are disadvantaged in the school environment. They are also disproportionately represented among out-of-school children. Inclusive Design for Learning provides a means to address this crisis of exclusion of persons with identified and unidentified disabilities, which may be permanent or episodic. This Knowledge Series paper introduces the dimensions of inclusive design as it applies to learning and focuses on the design of diverse learning experiences to help optimise learning opportunities for all learners. Through the individualisation and adaptation of learning materials enabled by open education practices and the flexibility of digital resources, excluded or struggling learners can be included, to the benefit of all learners.
