As we come to the end of our INACT – Inclusive Educators project, we will take a look at the fantastic resources that have been produced as part of the project. The goal of INACT was to provide educators with the knowledge, skills and confidence to engage in pedagogic innovation, helping them to create inclusive, innovative and genuinely engaging learning experiences for all their students.
Diversity among learners, from immigrant groups, to NEETs and disadvantaged learners, to the neurodiverse, challenges traditional one-size-fits-all teaching and exposes a distinct need for learning spaces that work for ALL students.
The INACT project partners have worked to create the following resources, which you can take at your leisure:
1. Differentiated Instruction for Inclusive Classrooms an online course that introduces the challenges that diversity poses and upskills participants on the principles of Differentiated Instruction as a proactive means to cater for different learning needs and styles. This course features 6 modules and 6 hours of study in total. https://www.inclusiveeducators.eu/online-course/
2. The INACT Good Practice Compendium is expected to provide new ideas, broaden and deepen educators’ skill set by showcasing and providing guidance on introducing effective learning and teaching activities in order to teach theoretical knowledge and practical skills as well as developing general key competencies. https://www.inclusiveeducators.eu/good-practice-compendium-for-creative-classrooms/
3. The INACT Education 4.0 Digital Toolbox empowers educators to rethink your use of technology in the light of new pedagogical approaches, and to become more skilled in the selection and use of digital tools to favour learner inclusion and effective learning. Designed for use in VET education, this toolkit is highly transferable to other fields of education. https://www.inclusiveeducators.eu/education-4-0-digital-toolbox/
We’d like to thank our project partners for their hard work on this project: Folkuniversitetet, AKMI, Open Education Community, EUEI, and Tallinn University.
