This unit focuses on the nature of inclusive education in the 21st century, with an emphasis on diversity and exceptionality. Based on a philosophical foundation that values every child/student and acknowledges the right of every child/student to the most appropriate educational opportunities, this unit involves researching and analysing the theoretical and practical issues associated with effective inclusive education. You will be required to develop a broad and coherent base of knowledge regarding learning and teaching approaches to suit the diverse educational needs of children/students. You will build on your understanding of theories of human development and learning in relation to diversity and exceptionality, applying planning models to include all learners.
