Inclusive Teaching and Learning Newsletter

Inclusive Teaching & Learning Newsletter

The inclusive teaching and learning newsletter keeps colleagues updated with new developments, resources, good news stories, and opportunities for you to get involved with helping us meet our aims.

Welcome to the newsletter!

Hello! I’m Jenny Brady, Project Lead for Inclusive Learning and Teaching, and I’m based in LITE (the Leeds Institute for Teaching Excellence).

I’ve created this regular newsletter for School Academic Leads for Inclusive Practice (SALIPs) and other colleagues across the institution who are committed to embedding inclusive approaches to learning and teaching. It’s a place where I will keep you up to date with any new developments and resources, share good news stories and tell you how you, your colleagues and students can get involved with helping us meet our aims.

If you would like to be added to the mailing list for this newsletter, you can email me at, join the LITE Community team on MS Teams or view the latest editions on this site.
