Overview

Learn practical strategies for making education inclusive

Millions of children around the world are excluded from access to education because of a disability - robbing them of their potential and diminishing our society.

On this course you will learn about inclusive education, understanding what barriers there are to learning and how to challenge them. Over six weeks you will learn from a range of people with experience of disability, discovering practical ways to create a more inclusive learning environment that you can apply in your own area.

Join us and help create a world where learning is for all children.

The course has been created for teachers, other professionals and parents interested in developing inclusive education.

If you are part of a community wanting to develop inclusive education in a school, you could form a group to support each other’s learning and try out inclusive strategies. We will provide additional resources and ideas for those wanting to implement inclusive education practices, especially in low resource settings.

This has been an encouraging and motivating course in which I have enjoyed listening to different people from many different countries and cultures talk about their life, experiences and pieces of advice to put into practice. All this has helped me understand more about disabilities and how different schools face it. It will definitely make a difference in my teaching. I am sure I will have a chance to use the material and resources we have been given in this course. A great message to pass around is that about how all members in a community can change things by collaborating. Thank you

This course is useful for my present career as an educator, more especially since we are aiming at putting to practice an Inclusive Education. There are videos and articles available on the site to simplify the contents for this course. I was able to reflect back to real life situations, and this helped me follow.

I have learned that learners need to be supported and catered for according to their various abilities, by everyone in the community. No learner should be disadvantaged because of their physical or mental abilities.

I am grateful, I have taken this course. Thank you!!

This course was really great - It was easy to follow and was filled with lots of useful resources, videos, documents, links and more!

I really enjoyed the interaction with other attendees and the opportunity to ask the lecturers questions.

It also stimulates action towards a more inclusive environment in your own community and in that way enables you to create change in your area!

I highly recommend it to parents, teachers, therapists, headmasters and anyone involved in Inclusive Education!

Really great course. Ih has been Very informative and a eal eye opener for even an experienced teacher. It clarified so many doubts I had had which my teacher training never even touched on. ...And this course was only 6 weeks long. I would encourage anyone interested in learning the ESSENTIAL basics of inclusive education practices to take this course.

I really enjoyed this course it was thought provoking and provided many useful materials which can be used or adapted to ones own use. My perspective was from a parents view point but many students were teachers or other professionals and many contributed to give an all round view of the problem. The contributors to the course were inspirational. This course presented how other countries were dealing with inclusion and the drive and passion it took to achieve their aims. I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in inclusion.

An excellent well constructed course. Listening to different perspectives and interacting with different ways of learning has been great. Able to learn at my own pace and review materials repeatedly if needed. Variety of materials, videos, articles, discussions, make for interesting learning and ensured I was motivated throughout this course. Weekly format works well, not too content heavy, so that I felt able to complete each week and stay on track to finish in the 6 weeks.

This course is very useful because as a student who is studying towards becoming a teacher, I have been made aware of many issues regarding the classroom that I was bot aware of. I have learned that each learner is important as the next, and that it is important to that no learner is left behind. I also learned that learners with disabilities do not have to go to special schools to have access to the best quality of education.

I enjoyed the course it highlighted more on what I didn't understand. More especially on disability learners on how they should be taught gave more insight on every different learner deserves to get a better education as every child in school or in the community. Gave me more shared support and knowledge on inclusive education.
