Teaching Strategies

DEVS 1010

Course description

Students examine current special education policies and procedures in the Ontario educational system. The role of educational supports and the tools used to determine learning needs and approaches are investigated in relation to developmental and behavioural models of teaching and learning. The use of technology and environmental adaptations as a catalyst for learning and inclusion are examined relevant to the person’s age, developmental stage and learning preferences. Students practice using various technologies and teaching approaches to support academic and employability skill development.
