ABOUT THE TOOLBOX
YOUR IDEAS FOR A MORE INCLUSIVE EDUCATION
The Inclusive Educators' Toolbox grew out of the Centre for Distance Education's course, MDDE631 Inclusive Leadership and Practice in Education, at Athabasca University. This course addresses the skills, knowledge, and attitudes required to deal successfully with student diversity. Participants address current challenges they face in a collaborative manner designed to create an ongoing community of practice. In the video below, Dr. Marti Cleveland-Innes describes the background to this important initiative.
