Empowering Teachers, Empowering Learners
The European Agency for Special Education and Inclusive Educationworked on behalf of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) to provide a suite of materials on empowering teachers. The study highlights the increasing focus on human rights and equity in international and European level policy that aims to promote social cohesion and stresses the need to improve teacher education programmes. Teacher educators need to be better prepared to address diversity issues.The results of this work have been summarised in three documents: a literature review, a case study and a methodology overview. A further output includes a re-designed Inclusive Education in Action website: Empowering Teachers: Empowering Learners. The site includes over 30 examples from all around the globe, focusing on teacher education and professional development.
