Disrupting the Conventional Discourse of Inclusive Teacher Education in an Era of Chaos

Mon, April 20, 2:15 to 3:45pm, Hyatt, Floor: West Tower - Gold Level, Regency AB


Teacher educators in special education have been working at the project of inclusive teacher education since the inception of modern special education law. But in the face of the persistent low achievement of students who are identified as having a disability, clearly what we have been doing has been far from sufficient.

In this paper, we aim to reframe four current issues in inclusive teacher education that, from our perspective, require disruption if inclusive teacher education is to have a serious chance of becoming a force for sustained, imaginative pre-service practice. By extension, this expands to what teacher educators view as critical in terms of what new teachers might be held accountable for as their performance is assessed.
