Theme lecture by dr. Gönül Dilaver – Inclusive Education in Life Sciences
As educators we are being challenged with diverse students with different needs and backgrounds. This challenge certainly creates opportunities to optimize our teaching methods. With the growing international diversity of our student population, it is of great importance that we facilitate an inclusive educational environment. Inclusive education will enrich the educational experience of all students and prepare them for society in which diversity is a fact. But how do we do so and why is it important that we as educators pay attention to this topic? During an interactive presentation these questions will be addressed and suggestions towards more inclusive education will be touched upon.
