Inclusive and diverse classroom

2-DAY WORKSHOP   |   7-8 October 2019

Research seems to indicate that inclusive classrooms are beneficial both for students with special educational needs and for non-special-needs kids, as the first learn to challenge themselves and the latter develop attitudes of tolerance and acceptance. Managing and respecting diversity in classrooms though is often hard for teachers.

The workshop will provide an introduction for teachers who would like to learn how to design lessons and activities and make their classrooms and school more accessible to all.
