The unit will explore the nature of inclusive education in the 21st century with an emphasis on special education, diversity, and exceptionality. Based on a philosophical foundation that values every student and acknowledges the right of every student to the most appropriate educational opportunities, this unit explores the practical issues associated with effective inclusive education. This unit will explore learning and teaching strategies successfully used by educational practitioners as they provide the inclusive and supportive learning environments that suit the diverse educational needs of their students. It will also examine the various connecting programs and service provisions for diverse learners, utilising experts in the field, as well as advising on resources to support inclusive teaching and learning practices.
