Studies and teaching

Teaching focuses on the historical, socio-structural, cultural and pedagogical dimensions of exclusion, segregation, inclusion and diversity. Students learn about contested ways of classifying disability in welfare states, education and pedagogy as well as approaches to democracy, participation and self-determination, including in international comparison. Research-oriented seminars offer support in developing research questions, collecting [qualitative] data, and interpreting and evaluating empirical material.

Our teaching and research team offers dedicated courses in both Disability Studies and Inclusive Education in the form of introductory lecture series, advanced seminars and dissertation seminars as part of the Bachelor programmes “Educational Sciences” and “Teaching with Inclusive Pedagogy specialisation”. The teaching and research team takes part in compulsory modules along with the optional modules “Social and Inclusive Education” and “Body and Gender” in the Master programme “Educational Sciences”.

An ongoing workshop on interpretive research discusses empirical data and different methods for collecting and evaluating qualitative data. This workshop is open to doctoral researchers and advanced Master students. The team cooperates with the Doctoral School of the Centre for Interdisciplinary Gender Research on training for doctoral researchers.

When designing the teaching, it is important for the staff of the teaching and research area to offer diverse and varied opportunities for independent learning and research. The seminars seek to encourage dialogue-based and research-based learning as well as self-reflective ways of working and writing. The teaching aims to be barrier-free and enhance e-learning opportunities through open-online access to materials and texts on the digital library bidok.
