The project aims to design, prototype and test innovative solutions for teachers and stakeholders (such as Educational counsellors, inspectors, public administrators, delegates) to improve students’ equity and inclusion through the use of evidence-informed practices.
Addressing school inclusion requires of a holistic and interdisciplinary approach, and our consortium is formed by professionals from different area of knowledge and expertise: research, teaching, policymaking, teacher training, coaching, school development, school inspection, psycho/pedagogical and educational counselling from five different countries and three types of institution: higher education, public administration and professional association.
To address these priorities, the project proposes a holistic approach, including a 360º Intervention Plan addressing three pillars: (1) teachers’ capacity building; 2) school development; 3) networks with stakeholders and increasing awareness.
Derived from these three areas of intervention, the project will produce tangible results in five domains by producing five intellectual outputs, including:
Systematic datasets of criteria and indicators for teachers, school leaders and policymakers on evidence and research-informed practices for school inclusion;
A database with resources (effective, innovative teaching practices) for diverse classrooms and a digital prototype to engage teachers with quality and validated evidence and to facilitate the creation of multidisciplinary partnerships and networks, as well as an interactive workspace for school cooperation and information packs;
Training materials for teachers, school leaders and educational counsellors /tutors and education policymakers to tackle school diversity through EIPA;
School development plan including intervention guidelines, materials and structures;
European guidelines for policymakers and community stakeholders on how to foster networks and awareness level of evidence-informed decisions in the field of school inclusion and equity.
