Despite various types of admission-criteria to a specific degree program or a course in a program, students enter the classroom with different academic prerequisites. In contrast to primary education, where differentiation in teaching and learning activities is a common thing, academic diversity in the classroom seems somewhat neglected in HE. The keynote will address the topic “Diversity in students’ academic prerequisites” from different perspectives. The keynote will start with an introduction to the concept about the “Implicit Student”. Frome here, I look into what can be done to give the lecturer and fellow students a better understanding of the diversity in the classroom and how diversity in academic prerequisites can be handled didactically. The keynote will leave time for a short discussion of how the value of “diversity sensitive didactics” can be explored from a research perspective.
