Advanced Inclusive Practice is the second unit in the major unit sequence of the Master of Specialist Inclusive Education. In this unit we extend the work commenced in 'EIE702 Teaching and Learning in the Inclusive Classroom' to continue to develop a deep theoretical and research-informed knowledge base of the principles and practice of inclusive education across a variety of educational contexts. Students will enhance their developing repertoire of inclusive pedagogies, augmenting their existing practice with an advanced range of analytic skills, curriculum design and assessment tools and individual, group and community strategies.

This unit also incorporates 15 days of fieldwork undertaken in an inclusive educational context.

Students will upload a selection of course outputs into their E-Portfolio.
