Inclusive Practices in Education Settings ESH303

Launceston, Cradle Coast



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.
