EDTS513 Contextual Issues for Inclusive Learning
This unit covers a number of general issues that relate to inclusive educational contexts. Principles of social justice, equity, ‘normalisation’ and ‘least restrictive environment’ underlying inclusive practices are examined in light of legislation, policies, contemporary research and practice that recognise inclusion produces better outcomes for all students. Relevant terminology, concepts and language are introduced. The unit also looks at the nature of inclusive approaches in the provision of education within broader socio-cultural contexts.
