Course: Children learn in an equal opportunities school

Learning in the horizon of diversity and educational equity

Admission requirements


Semester: 1



Children are alike in that they are different. This unity in diversity is a valuable resource for their individual identity formation and active participation in the learning and global community. National and international developments on the topic of educational equity and inclusion form the starting point for the profile of schools and education in Austria today. This enriches teacher training and the teaching profession in pedagogical, ethical, and social dimensions.
