An Inclusive Approach to Support for Learning: Integrating the Support for Learning of a Diverse Student Body in the Curricullum

Kate Kirk.

This paper will offer a model of a 'holistic approach' to the development of learning of a diverse body of first year undergraduate students. Drawing on an ecclectic range of inclusive and emancipatory aspects of learning and teaching priciples and theories it will offer ideas on ways in which support for learning (including online learning) can be creativley developed to promote the learning of 'non-traditional adult entry' students.
