Trans-Inclusive Teaching Guidance
"Try this: Imagine the world as a place where anyone can safely and even joyfully express themselves the way they've always wanted to. Nothing about the bodies they were born with or what they choose to do with those bodies - how they dress them, or decorate, or trim or augment them - would get people laughed at, or targeted, or in any way deprived of their rights. Can you imagine a world like that?"

This resource provides a starting point for staff and students wishing to make the student learning experience inclusive for trans & gender diverse students.
Further support and resources on this topic are available via WIHEA Connect's trans-inclusive pedagogy portal.
A trans person is someone who identifies as a gender different to that which they were assigned at birth.
Gender diverse people include those who identify outside of the gender binary of male and female (non-binary, genderqueer, agender etc.) and/or who do not conform to the gendered expectations placed on them.
Further support with terminology is available via this glossary of terms.
