In this interactive workshop we will look together at principles and features of an autonomous learning environment which support inclusion of students with special needs. The features discussed will include the role of teacher and students, the use of a logbook, and possible activity types including ideas for evaluating process and products. We will also consider the challenges that arise due to corona.
This is a hands-on workshop and spaces are limited. Registration fee is 5GBP and includes materials from the workshop and access to the recording.
