Event description

Description


Inclusion is a term that gets thrown around. It is used to mean all things to all people and resists easy definition. It is generally accepted as 'a good idea' but how it can and could work in practice is often less obvious. For some the term has become hollow and clichéd, for others it is the bedrock on which all their practice rests.

Join us to discuss and debate 'inclusive practice' as we ponder its ever-changing meaning. We want to embrace (and exploit) the ambiguity of this term in order to begin some conversations between education / disability and see where it takes us.


Format of the Day: Each presenter will provide a provocation (a short presentation designed to capture your interest and engage you with some ‘big’ questions) around an area of research that responds to the title ‘Inclusive Practice: What’s the problem?’. This will be followed by a chance for extended discussion between everyone to explore how disability might help us think differently about education. You can be as active or passive in these discussions as you would like. There will be a break between each provocation session and refreshments will be provided.

This is a FREE event aimed at students and staff in the Sheffield Institute of Education.
