Disability: The value of Difference
"Just as gender is more than chromosomes and race is more than skin color, disability is more than an individual impairment" (Ferguson & Nusbaum, E., 2012). This course will go through all forms of disabilities. You will get to know how local schools are dealing with the differ issues both at an educational and legal level.
This course wants to:
Help aknowledge different disabilities in all of its forms;
Discover about how local schools deal with disabilities;
Exchange best practices with local teachers and/or tutors;
Rethink your current school system to make it more inclusive;
Offer learning tools to include disabled people in class.
Our courses, developed in the framework established by the Erasmus+ Programme, are crafted to include both formal and non-formal education methodologies. Starting with a theoretical approach to the theme of the course, we proceed with non-formal learning strategies in order to guarantee and stimulate an active contribution from the participants involved. In practice, we use: Presentations; Analysis of study cases; Discussions in the classroom; Role-plays; Technical visits to local private and public institutions; Conferences with local professionals to exchange good practices; Job shadowing experiences; Workshops to rethink old practices and introduce new ones.
