Week 1 : What is inclusive practice?

What is inclusion? How can we ensure our classrooms are inclusive? In the first week we’ll explore these questions and look at the general principles for both inclusive practice and inclusive approaches using the Inclusive Pedagogies Framework.

Introduction to Inclsuive Approaches

Inclusion is a trending topic in the world of education. And I’m glad – it means that finally, learners whose needs may have been ignored, or worse, neglected, are now being considered.

But inclusion is a big word. It covers many different aspects of what we do in the classroom. It’s relevant to the way we manage our classrooms, the materials we use, and the support we provide to students.

There’s a lot of information out there but what you find rarely covers everything. So I decided to create this course. It includes an overview of the different areas of inclusion in the classroom. It outlines several approaches that I believe are more inclusive than traditional approaches. And it helps you think about where you might want to take action in your classroom or school.

 

FAQ

I’ve signed up for the course. What will happen next?

You’ll receive a welcome email from me confirming your place on the course. I’ll also send you a questionnaire to help me learn a little more about you and your experience. This will help me tailor the course content to your needs.

Where will the course take place?

The course will be 100% online. Live sessions will be held in Zoom. There will also be a community where you’ll be asked to share your reflections (platform to be decided). You’ll receive a link to the community shortly after you sign up.

How many people will there be on the course?

Normally there will be a maximum of twelve people on the course. In the live sessions, you will be asked to discuss some tasks in smaller groups.

You’re in Europe but I’m in a different time zone. Will I be able to attend the live sessions?

The time of the weekly sessions will be chosen according to the needs of the majority of participants and I will endeavour to choose a time that works for everyone. However, if you are not able to attend any of the sessions, they will be recorded for you to watch later.

How much does the course cost?

The first round of the course will be offered in June/July at a special low price. In return for this discount, you’ll be asked to provide feedback on the course content and user experience. This will help me shape and perfect the course for future participants.

The current price for the beta version of the course is 95€ (approx. 80 GPB)
