Inclusive education

School segregation is still an unfortunate reality nowadays in Europe, and it affects negatively, among others, children from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds, children with disabilities and other children due to their social or personal circumstances. The traditional understanding of teaching is becoming obsolete in the face of increasing numbers of learners from the aforementioned backgrounds, with different abilities and educational needs in today’s classrooms. Teachers are challenged to grow and adapt to the demands of schooling for the 21st century and beyond. This course is dedicated to the teachers of any type of school (primary, secondary, high schools, etc.), educators, principals, social workers, school psychologists and anyone who wants to develop their knowledge and strategies on providing meaningful access and participation in an inclusive classroom.

The program of this course was prepared with the support of qualified special education teachers.
