Creative Expression as a Means towards Inclusive Education

Course Duration:  56 hours

Many a time, children with learning difficulties are stigmatised and associated with failure. This connotation, in turn, significantly lowers their self-esteem. On the other hand, the production of art and the development of artistic skills leads this group of children to find meaning and a sense of competence and mastery.
The EU’s emphasis on creative expression as a core competence in education and the increasing importance of creativity in business means that students should now be encouraged to develop their artistic skills.

Therefore, during this module, learners are exposed to a variety of creative media, so that, in turn, they can develop alternative teaching strategies that recognise each student’s capabilities.
