Webinar: Inclusive Teaching During and Beyond the COVID-19 Disruption
cordially invites to a public webinar
"INCLUSIVE TEACHING DURING AND BEYOND THE COVID-19 DISRUPTION"
The effect, impact and extent of the COVID-19 disruption on the modern world is unprecedented. Succeeding the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, 107 countries had implemented national school closures by March 2020. Nearly one billion students worldwide were not attending school due to this pandemic as at April 2020. Universities/School closures were followed by the implementation of emergency online learning as well as partial re-openings and closures.
This webinar explores inclusive teaching during the COVID-19 disruption and ponders a future where diversity is not marginalized.
Inclusive teaching is understood as a range of approaches to teaching that considers the diverse needs and backgrounds of all students/learners to create a learning environment where all students feel valued and where all students have equal access to learn. The process of inclusion is expected to incorporate fundamental change in the way a learning community supports and addresses the individual needs of each child. As such, effective models of inclusive education not only benefit students with disabilities, but also create an environment in which every student, including those who do not have disabilities, has the opportunity to flourish.
