About this resource
The Inclusive design modules are facilitated professional learning resources to build kaiako, educator, and teacher capability and confidence to be more inclusive with their practice. The resource is designed to meet the variability of education settings from early learning through to secondary school.
Inclusive design underpins many of the Ministry’s policies and strategies including the outcomes of the Highest Needs Review.
The Inclusive design modules can help schools, kura and services to respond and contribute to a fully inclusive education system. It responds directly to two of the National Education and Learning Priorities (NELP) objectives:
The resource is currently being tested and refined through active application in various settings – early learning services, primary schools and Regional Health Schools, including secondary settings.
The finalised set of resources will be freely available online from June 2023 for facilitators to access and use.
Partnership has been key to the development of the resource, and to trialling and refining it. Partners include CORE Education, Kaitiaki Rōpū, RTLB, Ministry Learning Support specialists, schools, Curriculum Leads and whānau.
The resource has 3 modules. Each module has a PowerPoint presentation, supporting material and facilitation guidance.
These supporting documents and videos are available now.

Dave McNabb talks about gathering student voice to reflect on lesson planning and learning design. He builds agency by asking students to think about what worked in a lesson, what didn’t work and what changes and adjustments they could use to be more successful next time.
Students talk about their understanding of Universal Design for Learning and how flexible options can cater for people who learn differently. The school has empowered students to know what they are learning, how to access the tools and supports they need for learning and how to make the learning work for them.
School leaders and the facilitator talk about how they developed a group of students as an expert learner group. As expert learners the students gained understanding of the Universal Design for Learning framework. This allowed them to recognise their own learning needs and appreciate how flexible options can cater for people that learn differently.
