This unit provides an overview of inclusive education and its application in educational and community settings. Students will critically analyse theories, research and policies and their implications for contemporary practice. Students study challenges experienced by people with additional needs and a select one or more perspectives for more in-depth study relating to assessment, intervention/ instruction, collaboration and support. Essentially, students are introduced to evidence-based approaches to education and intervention at individual, professional, cross-disciplinary and/or systems levels.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Demonstrate an understanding of the theoretical framework for understanding social justice, empowerment, learning diversity and inclusive education;

2. Use needs assessments and other tools to contextualise change and intervention from individual and group perspectives;

3. Prepare, implement and evaluate individualised practices and supports that are practical, ethical and feasible;

4. Demonstrate evidence-based professional insights or skills that link theory, international research and practice in relation to the topics studied; and

5. Demonstrate skills in developing responsive curricula, policy, procedures and /or professional learning that take into account individual, family, professional and workforce issues related to both people who provide and receive support.
