Inclusiveness for Diverse Learners

In today’s word, academic excellence requires elements beyond those traditionally associated with universities to actively engage individuals in curriculums and in communities to increase awareness. Knowledge and cognition in interactions within institutions envision quality and diversity of inclusive education. One of the elements which reflect striving for excellence in higher education is diversity. This index is fused in structural and practices of higher education such as learning styles and faculty-student social interactions. In this regard, the notion of inclusive pedagogy is emphasized by the educational institutions to advance practices for learners and students as the future intellectuals. Now, the question is to understand a synthesis of the involved issues to make an effective structural design and understanding the barriers towards a successful pedagogical approach in educational systems. There have been several theoretical practices to foster diversity into the content of curriculum. In the realm of program goals, all the elements of a higher education system should be equipped with knowledge and skills in the direction of improving the climate and curriculum transformation.

I was searching for teaching strategies when I came across this notion in teaching which is called scaffolding. Since it was new to me, I included the link as well. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Se6a9Q_37t4). Scaffolding by itself is “a temporary structure used to support people and material in the construction or repair of buildings and other large structures”. In education, scaffolding is to design the learning process for deeper understanding. Through this learning process, students are guided to promote their skills as receiving support. So, it is a framework to provide the learner with support and explore learning independently. Basically, it is construction of new knowledge.

To promote better learning scheme, diverse range of learners needs to be considered and educational settings should be developed to the effective incorporation of individuals through the process.
