Rating: 5/52 users

During your teaching you will encounter a wide variety of students, all with their own history, personality and challenges. In order to enable all your students to benefit from your teaching, you will need to deal with these student differences purposefully; But how do you do that? How do you reach all your students?

COURSE OVERVIEW
Today, inclusive education is increasingly understood as a complex endeavour. Although the term was originally used to refer to the inclusion of students with disabilities in mainstream schools, the conceptualisation of inclusive education has broadened over time to look at the issue the other way round – assuming that all children will be fully included in ordinary classrooms and schools. The aim of the training course is to empower teachers with skills and knowledge about social inclusion which are important for building an inclusive school. It focuses to the need for professionals with the capacity to respond to the increasing cultural, linguistic and developmental diversity of school communities and describes the principles of inclusion and their application in educational settings

METHODOLOGY
Based on formal, informal and non formal learning, our methodology will try to stimulate active participation, pro-activity, responsibility and sharing of problems and thoughts of all participants involved. In this way, we aim to build a diverse and stimulating environment for studying, reflecting and working. It has a horizontal and practical approach and will make use of the following tools:face-to-face lessons, study visits in inclusive centres,team-building and team-working, experiential learning, best practice case-studies, project working,driven simulations,role-play, study visits, focus-group, daily evaluation through self, group assessment, etc

LEARNING OUTCOMES
By the end of the course, each participant should be able to:
-to solve inclusion issues in multicultural classes

-to develop and appropriately apply knowledge, skills and attitudes relevant to inclusive education and the contexts in which it takes place
-to increase chances to get involved in order to avoid inclusion
-to develop new specific competences regarding social inclusion
-to raise motivation and interest work with disadvantaged students

-to learn new non-formal education activities and techniques in order to better integrate of all students in the classroom
-to reflect critically on the relationships between theory and practice and explore issues in the implementation of educational and social principles and ideals.
- to find strategies based on a very good overview and practical experience of tools through individual work, working groups and collective work regarding social inclusion
