Course contents

The subject area deals with the critical analysis and empirical research between social exclusion, participation and accessibility to educational content. Theoretical approaches and empirical methods are used, which originate from different disciplines, especially education, philosophy, sociology and psychology. The dynamics between genders, between persons (groups), different social and cultural origins as well as between normality and deviation/disability form central backgrounds. Students learn about goals and concepts of inclusion and important building blocks for the cooperation of educational stakeholders in inclusion.

Students are enabled to plan, accompany and evaluate inclusive educational processes. Based on the scientific training, students can justify and further develop inclusive work with the help of relevant theories and empirical findings.
