For this project, Brighton designed and developed this 5 hour online training course for the Delaware Excellence in Early Childhood Education (DIEEC) at the University of Delaware. This sample video is from Lesson 1. The course includes the following lessons:
- Lesson 1: Welcome and Overview
- Lesson 2: What is Inclusion?
- Lesson 3: Why Inclusion?
- Lesson 4: Family Partnerships
- Lesson 5: Including All Children
- Lesson 6: Making Inclusion Work
This course will introduce early childhood professionals working with young children of all abilities to the inclusive care and education model. This module will help early childhood professionals understand the philosophy and rationale for inclusion, including the legal requirements. Material will focus on the characteristics and principals of inclusive education along with learning strategies for working with families, who are critical partners in any inclusion effort. Through the process of examining current policies and practices providers will begin developing steps toward implementing more inclusion practices in their programs.
This course is one part of the training & tracking system that Brighton hosts for the state of Delaware. The system is located at this url:
