This symposium will provide an opportunity for education practitioners to access the most recent research and practice that describes effective and high quality inclusive education in both NZ schools and international examples.
A variety of speakers from different parts of the sector with wide knowledge and experience will address theory and research, share personal stories, political perspectives and future plans for inclusive education in NZ. Practical support and resources for teachers in the classroom will be a strong focus with opportunity for collaboration and discussion.
