We hope you are all doing well! It’s hard to believe it’s been a year since COVID-19 was declared a global pandemic which necessitated that we all began shifting the ways we worked, schooled, and conducted our lives. While it has been a very tough year in so many regards, we have no doubt learned a lot along the way. We are so glad that you are a part of our community of practice and that we continue to learn from each other through shared experiences across the globe.
The IEI is celebrating its 2nd
anniversary in April. To kick off our third year of continued learning and knowledge-sharing activities on disability-inclusive education, we are planning an exciting event. On April 6 and 7, we will be hosting a workshop series focusing on lessons learned from the activities and the research conducted under the IEI. These include sessions on the preliminary findings from the survey on learners with disabilities and COVID-19 school closures, disseminated last year at the onset of the pandemic; inclusive teaching, community-driven disability-inclusive education, and inclusive financing. Please see the detailed announcement below.
We also want to invite you to stop by our new website
. In continuing to make this your go-to website on various aspects of disability-inclusive education, we welcome your feedback. As we work to increase the amount of content on our repository, we kindly ask that you continue sending us documents so that others can learn from your work. Please reach out to us if you have a blog post, or anything else you would like featured on the website—we are happy to feature your work on disability-inclusive education. You can email us at email@example.com or join our LinkedIn Group and post questions directly there.
Again, thank you for being with us as we learned together during a difficult year. We promise to continue building this community of practice and knowledge hub and look forward to our continued collaboration in achieving the goal of ensuring all children have access to quality inclusive education.
With best wishes,
The Inclusive Education Initiative Team
