Course Description

Inclusion is a real buzz word in the educational field ... but what is it?

This course looks at Government legislation and policy on inclusion, discrimination and equality in education. This is invaluable information for you and your school to be well versed.

We will then address what is inclusion and what is not; provide a distinction between integration, inclusion and special education; and provide a framework for you to develop your own pedagogical practice that is in line with the future of education.
