Inclusive education can be seen as a process of strengthening the capacity of an educational system to reach out to all learners in the community.
This course has been tailored for teachers dealing with classroom diversity and disadvantaged learners, including those with special educational needs or a migrant background. Specifically, participants will acquire or improve their knowledge regarding:
- Defining inclusive education, key principles and values;
- Understanding the process of inclusion/Addressing barriers to participation, learning and resources to support all students within schools;
- Designing lessons and activities to support increasing diversity in contemporary classrooms (e.g. adaptations to ensure access to curricula, differentiated lessons and activities, authentic/alternative assessment tools);
- Using ICT tools to support all learners in inclusive settings;
- Collaboration within school communities (teachers, teaching assistants, students, parents/carers) in order to establish a framework of inclusive values and practices (e.g. co-teaching involving a general education and a special education teacher).
Upon completion of the course, participants using reflective instruments such as “Index for Inclusion” are expected to develop learning strategies, techniques and resources through a range of practical activities (e.g. case studies, hands on activities) aiming towards enhancing participation, learning and achievement for all students in sustainable educational environments.
