Somerset College has started 2020 with our ongoing commitment to Inclusive Education. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is based on the premise that variability among learners is the norm.
A universally designed curriculum is proactively designed from the outset to meet the needs of the greatest number of users. UDL identifies barriers, preferences, needs of individuals and goals of learning. Educators design flexible assessment and develop flexible and engaging methods and materials.
Our Teacher Assistants are a valued human resource for our students and as such have begun a series of professional development workshops provided by Independent Schools Queensland, aimed at the latest research into inclusive education. A multidisciplinary approach, in which all adults working with students and share this knowledge provides a greater depth of insight into individual student needs.
Our Teacher Assistants are committed to providing the best opportunities for students and we thank them for their dedication.
