Abstract
This paper examines accessibility from the point of view of inclusive teaching and learning in the higher education. Instead of focusing on the various disabilities, addressing the needs and the diversity of all students is adopted as a starting point. We present several conceptual tools regarding the process of collaborative knowledge building. Finally, we suggest an iterative cycle of developing inclusive teaching and learning by using a PDCA tool with the continual iteration on communities of practice level among all stakeholders.
