The Teacher is one element of the Inclusive Curricula & Teaching model developed by SCU, based on the literature and insights from students and staff. The Teacher is located within the second key enabler identified by the research for student success within the teaching context: Empowering Delivery.
The behaviours and attitudes of teaching staff, and their relationships with their students, greatly impact on student success. An empowering teacher acts as a model, motivates students, gives them the confidence to try and try again, and develops their competency.
