My Peers Have Also Been an Inspiration for Me: Developing Online Learning Opportunities to Support Teacher Engagement with Inclusive Pedagogy for Students with Severe/Profound Intellectual Developmental Disabilities
Jones, Phyllis
International Journal of Inclusive Education, v14 n7 p681-696 Nov 2010
This article explores how an online course was received by a group of teachers who teach students with severe/profound intellectual developmental disabilities. The intent of the course was to engage teachers in conversations, activities and reflections that support the development of curriculum and instruction in a least restrictive environment. Twelve teachers enrolled in the course and 10 teachers completed an open-ended survey about different aspects of the course design. The results of the surveys are discussed in the light of research on effective teacher learning in special education. The article illustrates that through careful course design, teachers can be supported to explore new ideas and be helped to apply new learning to the context of their classrooms. (Contains 3 tables.)
