Inclusive education for ALL (ITALY)

Rating: 0/5

Inclusive education is a modern educational approach whose main objective is to ensure equal access for all pupils to the educational good and to overcome the structural obstacles and stereotypes of the system that make it unable to respond to the heterogeneity of the needs of the students. Inclusive education values diversity and the unique contributions each student brings to the classroom. In a truly inclusive setting, every child feels safe and has a sense of belonging. Students and their parents participate in setting learning goals and take part in decisions that affect them and school staff have the training, support, flexibility, and resources to nurture, encourage, and respond to the needs of all students.
Inclusive education is based on the values of equality, social justice and the acceptance of diversity and equal opportunities in education. It involves all pupils, including pupils with disabilities and/or special educational needs or disabilities (SEN or SEN(D)) students, as well as disadvantaged pupils from vulnerable social groups (refugees, Roma and etc).

This course intends to contribute to inclusive education. It aims to help teachers to adopt the principles and approaches of inclusive education and to be able to respond to the heterogeneity of the student population, equipping them with the way of organizing the learning process and motivating students to self-action, experimentation and active learning. At the end of the course participants will be equipped with a number of innovative approaches such as differentiated teaching, the basic principles and techniques of active and experiential learning and collaborative teaching, the exploitation of the potential offered by new technologies, arts and multimodal means so they will have the chance to enrich their teaching potential and be able to response to the needs and interests of ALL students.
