So, what does this assumption mean for teachers? For me, it means I need to consider things like: the learning environment and how it impacts different learners; varied learning styles and preferences; and cultural implications of my teaching strategies. In my role as a trainer/teacher, I need to consider each of these important aspects of teaching. For example, we have a diverse workforce at CLBC, so I need to think about learning strategies that support staff from various backgrounds. Below, I have included a link to a video in which future educators share ideas about how they might support the learning of diverse students in their classroom.
