Inclusive Core Practice supports the diverse needs of students and enables learning independent of time, location and pace.
All UAL courses should have an online ‘core’ regardless of the ratio of on-site and online delivery. This will help course teams support communication and increase student engagement, retention and attainment. This will help students achieve learning outcomes and feel confident about their digital wellbeing.
