Are we all included and equal? – Varinder Unlu

Inclusive education is a process of addressing and responding to the diversity of needs of all learners through increasing participation in learning, cultures and communities, and of reducing exclusion from education. ELT is a profession which tries to promote tolerance and understanding, yet it is often lacking in inclusivity and equality. Policies alone are not enough to build an inclusive workplace.In this session we will be looking at:

  • Looking at what inclusion means and how it can help not just learners, but everyone involved from teachers and managers to administration staff and school owners.
  • What diversity, inclusion and equality look like in the workplace.
  • How we include not only students with learning differences but also raise awareness of LGBTQ and racial and cultural differences.
  • Points to consider when embedding equality.
  • The benefits of inclusion, diversity and equality in the classroom and the workplace.
The workshop is designed so that, in the process of conveying information about inclusive education, it will also demonstrate participatory processes that participants can use in their work and demonstrate some of the teaching and learning approaches that often characterise an inclusive classroom.
