Practical information




Inclusive education is the cornerstone to develop a more inclusive society. EASPD, in cooperation with the projects EQF meets ECVET, INVESTT and TIDE,  will showcase a selection of best practices in developing inclusive teaching programmes for persons with disabilities, and will strive to develop recommendations for policy makers, school administrations and teachers to improve inclusion in education.

Thanks to the different perspectives of these projects, the event is expected to bring together a wide range of stakeholders to discuss these best practices. This conference will be a great opportunity to assess where inclusive education stands in Europe, and for everyone to select the elements that would fit best and enrich to their own learning environment.

The conference programme wishes to be developed with a universal design, and participants can build their own schedule based on their preferences and needs. Twelve interactive workshops where concrete best practices are presented and discussed will be held in parallel to each project panel in the plenary room, and will be repeated four times.
