Inclusive Pedagogy: a way of being? Mapping inclusive pedagogy in initial teacher education

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Aims
This presentation will report on the findings relating to the University of Dundee from the collaborative study to identify and map inclusive pedagogy across Scotland’s universities initial teacher education programmes.

Methods
Following the development of the National Framework for Inclusion (STEC, 2009 and updated 2014), the Scottish Universities Inclusion Group have been working to articulate and deliver consistent approaches to the promotion of inclusive pedagogy across initial teacher education courses in Scotland. All eight universities are participating in the research.
We have used The Council of Europe’s ‘Tool to Upgrade Teacher Education Practices for Inclusive Education’ (Hollenweger, Pantic and Florian, 2015) to map inclusive teacher education practice and to identify and record how the principled approaches of the Framework for Inclusion are evident in initial teacher education across Scotland. The tool uses an activity model that can be applied to examine the activities that are taking place on our courses, and the intended outcomes.

Main Findings
Mapping using the tool has taken place with qualitative data being collected through audits of programme materials, and interviews and surveys with lecturers and students. The findings so far will be discussed.

Conclusions
Conclusions and findings, including recommendations for policy and practice, will be discussed.
