ESS419 Principles of Inclusive Education (8)

This subject builds knowledge and skills in the theory and practice of Inclusive Education. This includes the theoretical, philosophical, and applied underpinnings of the practice of inclusion, the current state of practice in the field, and the design of inclusive pedagogy. Students will build their capacity to address the needs of students with disabilities in a non-categorical fashion employing approaches that focus on learner need and context rather than label. The intent of the subject is to assist students to become self-organising inclusive educators through the processes of research, design, reflection, and collaboration.
