  • Making explicit to students the standards of conduct that you expect in the way that they interact and dealing promptly and appropriately with inappropriate behaviour. 

  • Identifying opportunities within your teaching for students to work collaboratively in diverse groups. 

  • Devising creative and respectful ways of using the diverse experiences of students to add value to the learning experience for everyone.
