Pursuit of inclusion in education: Society, politics, and governance
This course will introduce learners to a range of theories, issues and debates about inclusive education.
By the end of the course, students should develop their own understanding of who to include and how to include. The task of including various groups of people (e.g. people with disabilities, ethnic minorities and indigenous peoples, refugees, migrants, females) and ensuring that everyone has access to quality education is a challenging one that requires proper examination and confrontation of a range of issues, including politics, society, culture, and the education system.
This course offers an opportunity for students to pursue research in aspects of interest in inclusive education, and hopefully be inspired to include issues of inclusive education in their future research. Students who are already working on a project or thesis can ask for permission to use this course to develop aspects of their research.
