The Role of Collaboration in a Comprehensive Programme Design Process in Inclusive Education
Zundans-Fraser, Lucia; Bain, Alan
International Journal of Inclusive Education, v20 n2 p136-148 2016
This study focused on the role of collaboration in a comprehensive programme design process in inclusive education. The participants were six members of an inclusive education team and an educational designer who together comprised the design team. The study examined whether collaboration was evident in the practice of programme design and associated institutional processes. This was determined through an examination of institutional documents and reflections on collaborative practice provided by design team members in semi-structured interviews about their experiences. The study found that designing the programme collaboratively was more time intensive and at times challenging but ultimately produced a more coherent programme with transparent design, structure and content for students and teachers.
