What is the Knowledge Platform for Inclusive Education?

The knowledge platform is meant to inspire you as an educator, by providing comprehensible information about the various tools and trainings, that you can implement or bring into your learning space for yourself and your students, to be able to create an inclusive learning environment. It is structured on four pillars which outline the four main areas of focus in practicing inclusive education: Community BuildingConnective CommunicationCritical Self-Reflection, and Contextualization of Knowledge. Underneath each of the pillars are several resources (what we call toolboxes) focusing on more practical and specific interventions.

Inclusive education refers to an educational system that is designed to accommodate (and respond to) all students by providing equal access to education, promoting equal participation, and foster a sense of belonging, regardless of the student’s backgrounds, abilities, or other factors. Inclusive education considers the full spectrum of student diversity to create policies, curricula, and learning environments that are flexible and responsive to the needs of all learners and foster a sense of belonging and community among students from diverse backgrounds. Inclusive education is not just about the presence of diversity within an educational institution, but about transforming the institution so that it works for all members of the community through a continuous effort to identify and remove barriers to learning and participation, and by acknowledging and incorporating the diversity of experiences and perspectives in the classroom.
