Inclusion Reconceptualized: Pre-Service Teacher Education and Disability Studies in Education
Gilham, Christopher M.; Tompkins, Joanne
Canadian Journal of Education, v39 n4 2016
In this article, two teacher educators describe and explain how they are reconceptualizing a pre-service teacher education course on inclusion using disability studies in education (DSE) scholarship. The DSE approach better connects the oft-separated field of diversity and inclusion, and builds on the program's overall focus on equity education. Using a critical reflective self-study approach, these researchers weave together scholarship about inclusive education with their lived classroom experiences in a teacher education program. They conclude that cultivating practical judgement in pre-service teachers is important to inclusive education.
