EquiLearn Virtual Roundtable: discussion of the principles of an intersectional approach to inclusive education.
About this Event
In this EquiLearn Virtual Roundtable, we will engage participants in a discussion of the principles of an intersectional approach to inclusive education and practices that can serve to implement this approach. In addition, we will discuss the implications of such approach to participants' local contexts.
In this virtual roundtable, you will:
• Discuss how an intersectional approach to inclusive education can be implemented
• Have space to ask questions about the Equity by Design Research Brief: "An Intersectional Approach to Inclusive Education"
• Identify local barriers for the implementation of an intersectional approach to inclusive education, and ways to dismantle them
