This course introduces students to methods of critical enquiry into the social, institutional, classroom and individual practices that can support and/ or hinder the inclusion of diverse learners.
How might we make education about the learning and belonging of all learners? Is it possible to make exclusion in early childhood centres, classrooms, schools and universities a thing of the past? How do experiences of inclusion and exclusion in the education system shape our wider communities? In this course we explore the experiences and effects of inclusion and exclusion, with a view to understanding how we can help move toward more inclusive practices for diverse learners – for all of us.
Students will: Describe, compare and contrast various means of framing inclusive education;Examine and contextualise current debates in NZ in/about inclusive education;Analyse research, policy and education as sites of inclusive or exclusionary practices;Evaluate text for its reproduction of exclusion and potential for inclusion.
