EDUC 340 - Disability Studies in Education: Research, Policy, and Practice

Semester Offered: Fall
1 unit(s)
In this course, we look at many different educational settings, both in and outside of school, from preschool through post-secondary education, to explore how ableism/anti-ableist practices influence policy and practice. Emanating from disability studies more broadly, disability studies in education (DSE) critiques the oppression of disabled students in educational settings, particularly special education, and advocates for the end of segregated education settings and the inclusion of disabled people in decisions made about them. Scholars who locate their work in DSE use multidisciplinary approaches when conducting and sharing research which  allows participants to engage many different types of texts including qualitative and case study research articles, podcasts, comics, zines, music and more. Participants are required to participate/observe one hour a week in an educational setting. Erin McCloskey.
