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 learner diversity in their own classrooms employing an approach that focuses on learner need and context rather than label. The intent of the subject is to assist students to become self-organizing inclusive educators through the processes of research, design, reflection and collaboration.
