Uitgebreide vaknaam Student Diversity in the (Inclusive) Classroom
Leerdoelen 1. After completion of this course students will be able to summarize the main theoretical perspectives on both the diversity of individual learner needs (cognitive, metacognitive, social, emotional, motivational, physical) and the environmental support in the context of the (inclusive) classroom.
2. After completion of this course students will be able to use theoretically derived principles and empirical research evidence to optimise learning opportunities and to provide inclusive and equitable quality education in support of the diverse learner needs (cognitive, metacognitive, social, emotional, motivational, physical).
3. After completion of this course students will be able to propose adaptations in the interaction with the diversity of students and in the unfolding of opportunities to support the learning needs of students within the (inclusive) classroom.
4. After completion of this course students will be able to ground and communicate how effectively support meets the learner needs (cognitive, metacognitive, social, emotional, motivational, physical) in the context of the (inclusive) classroom.
Omschrijving In this course, major theoretical, methodological, instructional and organisational advances that have occurred in the field of (special needs) education are focused upon. The core issue is how (effectively) support meets learner needs. Hence, two major themes are addressed: 1. The role of teachers and counsellors interacting with the diversity of students: cultural biases, interpersonal and intercultural diversity; 2. Opportunities to support learner (special) needs in learning (problems in the acquisition and automatization of reading, spelling, writing, math, information-processing and working memory problems), in social-emotional, in self-concept related and in behavioural challenges within the (inclusive) classroom context.
