Module summary

This module is innovative in that it requires you to reflect on your experiences of inclusive education in an English educational setting and make links with the content of the modules which form the MA SEN> Additionally, it provides an opportunity to make comparison between inclusive education theory, policy, research and practice in your own country and in England.It complements the work you will undertake in the core module in semester 2 where one assignment title specifically requires you to consider an inclusive curriculum.It is a supernumerary module.


In relation to inclusive education, this module aims:
- to provide students with the opportunity to make links between theoretical understandings, policies, and research and the practice in an English educational setting;
- to reflect on a sustained experience of inclusive education in that setting; and
- to consider the opportunities for learning within and across educational settings and countries.

Further, it aims to refine their skills in synthesising material and producing an effective presentation.

Presenting material


The students will have an extended school placement (ie approximately 10 sessions over a 10 week period). This will be arranged through Students into Schools or by the School of Education. The focus will be on inclusive education rather than a case study of a single child.

The content of this module is directly linked to the other modules which form the MA (SEN). It will be supported by seminars before, during and after the placement. Support for the assignment will also be provided.

- become familiary with the policies and approaches of the educational setting; and
- prepare for the weekly activities with the educational setting as required.

They are also expected to maintain a learning log which will inform their presentation.

In combination these activities will underpin the presentation that is used as the formal assessment.

Opportunities for Formative Feedback

During the module there will be on-going monitoring of student progress in seminar sessions and, in some instances, through contact with the host educational setting.

Formal assessment will be through a presentation (equivalent to 2000 words).

1. Students will have studies, from an international perspective, theories, policies, research and practices including curricular issues associated with inclusive education. This module requires a consideration of these dimensions within a particular setting.

2. Individually students will produce a presentation that reflects on inclusive education in the placement including their reflections on the comparison with inclusive education in their own country. It is expected that suggestions will be included about what can be learnt from each system.

3.. Students completing the core module in semester one (EDUC5610M) will have been required to contribute to the development of a group presentation and to present this to the cohort. This assessment allows them to demonstrate their individual skills.
