According to Morgan and Houghton, 2011, there are different kinds of diversity:
- Educational diversity: skills, abilities, knowledge, experience (life and work), learning approach.
- Dispositional diversity: motivation, aspiration, expectation, attitude, maturity, interests, gender, sexuality.
- Circumstantial diversity: age, employment, disability, geographical location, IT access, transport access, financial means, marital status.
- Cultural diversity: language, values, religion, country of origin/ residence, ethnicity, social background.
