Are you trying to learn more about inclusive schooling? Do you wonder how to support students with disabilities in general education classrooms? Are you seeking new ideas for working in K-12 classrooms, collaborating with colleagues and elevating your practice? If you answered “yes” to any one of these questions, this session is for you.
The examples and illustrations in this keynote presentation are designed to help participants understand the best practices associated with today’s inclusive schools and to evaluate their own skills and understandings as they are related to inclusive education. Topics that will be addressed include understanding inclusion as a process (vs. as a place), presuming complexity and engaging in “radical” role sharing. Ideas for virtual inclusion will be addressed as well.
