This course focuses on bringing together ideas and information about creating, developing and encouraging inclusive learning and teaching environments in higher education in one place.

Whilst you can use paper, there are any number of ways you can create a glossary online:
You might like to create a glossary that you can share with fellow learners. You will just need to ‘copy and paste’ the URL (web address) to share in the comments below.
