Teaching shifts its focus to inclusiveness. We, as teachers, have to educate ourselves about the praxis of inclusiveness. It is also our responsibility to create a school climate in which such approach is fruitful and embraced by students, staff, and the wider community. This is a practical workshop which will give its attendees many ideas on how to approach inclusiveness in PHE classes.

Our inclusion unit is based on the main assumption that empathy for people with challenges will not only expose our students to new physical demands, but also help them gain an awareness that makes true inclusion possible.
