Meeting Spec Ed Needs Through Curriculum - EDPD5015

Year - 2018

This unit of study explores the design and development of educational programs that allow students with special education needs to access the general curriculum on the same basis as their peers. Current research in inclusive curriculum design will be explored together with a critical analysis of the political and controversial issues related to the design of such curricula. Concepts of universal design for learning, selection and design of curriculum adjustments, and evidence-based instructional practices will be examined. Students will critically reflect on these principles and concepts within the context of their professional practice.
