Inclusive Learning and Critical Pedagogy
Course Duration: On Request
Critical pedagogy brings attention to the way education is delivered. It's a problem-solving approach that strongly believes in education as a political praxis that liberates and emancipates humans, leading to transformative action.
Learning Support Educators provide equal opportunities for students by adapting activities according to the pupil’s needs and capabilities. Critical Pedagogy is, therefore, a perspective that LSEs should incorporate in their value system to reach their full potential as educators. Furthermore, this approach enables the individual to comprehend that inclusion is an ongoing process.
