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 Building, Connective Communication, Critical 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.
We define inclusive education as an approach to education in which diverse students and teachers feel a high level of psychological safety because they feel they belong, that their voice is respected and that they can be successful regardless of the visible or invisible aspects of diversity
In creating a safe learning environment, we provide the inclusive education tools necessary to have all discussions and dialogue in a respectful and compassionate setting that maintains connection across differences. This safe learning environment encourages dialogue, which might feel uncomfortable, but everyone will participate respectfully and come to new understandings.
