2.1 Analyse inclusive approaches to learning and teaching.
It is very important in the environment that I work to ensure that all learning sessions are inclusive,
and I achieve that by selecting different learning and teaching methods. The Learning and Teaching
methods that can be used during a lesson; choosing which techniques to use will depend on the
learners that are in my class. Choosing inclusive learning and teaching techniques allows the entire
group to be involved and ensures that the training session is inclusive. This is particularly important
due to the high level of illiteracy, poor English and cultural barriers that exist in the construction
I find the Socratic method (also known as method of elenchus, elenctic method, or Socratic debate),
named after the classical Greek philosopher Socrates, that is a form of inquiry and discussion
between individuals, based on asking and answering questions to stimulate critical thinking and to
illuminate ideas not only assesses learning outcomes but also draws learners into discussions and
therefore helps them to identify their strengths.
Ice breakers are also a good way to get learners interacting with each other and help to get the
learners to know one another and they can start to break down barriers that each learner may have.
Ice breakers can be simple way of getting to know each other tasks which can consist of finding out a
few facts about others, this doesn't require any writing, so is often a good way to build inclusivity
within the group without any learners feeling threatened.
A practical activity may be more appropriate for learners that learn kinaesthetically and that may
possibly struggle with written work. By using this teaching and learning methods I start to take away
some of the barriers that learners may face in their learning journey. The result of removing or
partially removing barriers is that the learners will feel included and able to learn.
