Inclusive Practice


This module focuses on the conditions and processes associated with inclusive practice in education.  The module begins with an overview which provides the context within which the concept 'inclusive practice' is examined critically.  A range of current issues associated with inclusive practice are being considered.  Throughout the module, participants are invited to use their learning to analyse inclusive practice with which they are familiar and to consider how such practice can be enhanced. 

Upon completion of this module, participants will be able to:  

  • Demonstrate and work with knowledge that covers and integrates the main dimensions of inclusive practice, including their features, boundaries, terminology and conventions.  
  • Demonstrate critical understanding of the principal theories, concepts and principles associated with inclusive practice.  
  • Demonstrate a critical awareness of current issues associated with inclusive practice.  
  • Critically evaluate approaches used to promote inclusive practice and consider how these approaches can be enhanced.  
  • Present reasoned arguments and express ideas in a clear, coherent style that follows closely the UWS academic writing and referencing guidance. 

This is an SCQF Level 11 module and upon successful completion, participants will be awarded 20 credits.
