The case for universal inclusion in educational environments is as simple as it is powerful: there is no better time or place to instill inclusive values and skills than when people are there to learn.
Whether your focus is on serving a broader student base, or on drawing faculty and staff from a more diverse population, Capitalizability LLC has programming and consulting services to help meet your goals.
Below are some of the programs and resources Capitalizability LLC offers for educators and educational environments
Where Does Universal Inclusion Fit in Education
The most critical step towards a new vision of inclusion is refocusing on one based on maximizing everyone’s participation, rather than seeing inclusion through the lens of remediation of a “problem.” This program fosters the process by introducing the concept of universal inclusion in a series of exercises to guide educators, administrators, and support staff into thinking about both the students and potential team members from a perspective based on their talents, rather than their differences.
Universal Inclusion in the Classroom
Pursuing and implementing universal inclusion among adults in a workplace is a subtly different thing from bringing these ideas into the classroom. In order to better meet these needs, Capitalizability offers both a speech and a workshop addressing student-oriented challenges and opportunities found in the educational environment.
Building on a foundational understanding of universal inclusion, this customized workshop provides tools for putting those principles into practice. Captilaziability LLC, in collaboration with your designated representative(s) will design a series of training scenarios and educational content based on the unique needs of your staff and/or students. Workshop participants will build hands-on experience implementing principles and practices of universal inclusion in ways directly applicable in and out of the classroom.
Customized Workshops Based on Identified Needs
While many schools, organizations, and communities pursue universal inclusion for its financial, cultural, and moral benefits, others have specific and pressing challenges they need help in addressing. These workshops are tailored not only to your organization, but to the specific needs within it that you are already aware of.
Whether the goal is expanding the populations you can serve, enhancing the experiences of enrolled students, or broadening your pool of professional talent, the decision to make inclusion an organizational priority is first crucial step. One of Matan Koch’s nationally renowned Igniting Inclusion speeches will spark excitement and provide the inspiration so essential for success.
The Inclusive Classroom
Building a culture and working model of inclusion in educational environments presents one of the greatest ways that inclusion can change lives. This speech specifically addresses the student-oriented challenges and opportunities that embracing diversity brings to the classroom.
Strategy Sessions for Educators
Inclusion in the classroom is not an unfamiliar topic in the modern age of mainstreamed students. However, universal inclusion turns many of our conventional inclusion approaches on their head. These strategy sessions are designed to give educators a chance to explore putting these principles into action in ways that address their specific needs.
