Learn more about inclusive learning environments through an on-demand presentation and new online hub
The Victorian Deaf Education Institute (VDEI) is promoting an online module on setting up an inclusive learning environment and a new digital resource hub of inclusive education resources for teachers.
Creating an inclusive learning environment
Teachers can now register to view a VDEI on-demand presentation discussing strategies to support effective inclusive practices in the classroom.
The one-hour presentation is delivered by Dr Joy Zabala, who has extensive experience conducting professional development and training about how to use assistive technology. Assistive technology is used to improve functioning and independence.
Dr Zabala's presentation explores the concept of universal design for learning, an educational framework that helps give all students an equal opportunity to succeed.
The Students, Environments, Tasks and Tools framework supports collaborative decision-making that helps educators make informed decisions about assistive technology support and delivery.
Participants who successfully complete this on-demand module will receive a certificate noting two hours of professional learning.
VDEI on-demand presentations are available via online registration and allow participants to access presentations at a time that suits them.
The presentation can be accessed for four weeks from registration, and costs $30.
Teachers are encouraged to discuss support to cover costs with their school.
