MULTIPLY: Activities

MULTIPLY Output involves transferring the lessons learned on inclusive practices in schools to teachers, through the creation of a freely available Massively Open Online Course (MOOC), which will train teachers on how to use their school’s inclusion strategies as starting points to improve inclusive practices in the classroom through improving planning, execution and evaluation of lessons and through creation of a more inclusive environment overall.

With the MOOC we will create a new educational experience that will provide strategies that build on holistic, authentic instructional approaches and that provides a range of techniques for accommodation, adaptation of the curriculum, and utilization of support models for students and teachers.

The MOOC will be an 8-12 week online course aimed at introducing teachers in schools on how to recognise students at risk of exclusion with their classes, how to engage with them within the context of a school’s overall inclusion strategy, and which teaching strategies can be most effective in different contexts to fully include them in classes.
