The Department for Teacher Education, Campus Esbjerg, provides a 4-month modular course specially designed for both foreign and Danish students. The classes are organised as lectures, self-studies and with a variety of methods with focus on practice-oriented exercises, case studies and research findings. As special needs education is a constantly evolving field, recent and cutting-edge research and topical debates will enter classroom discussions and other teaching and learning activities.

The student is able to plan, implement, evaluate and develop inclusive teaching sequences for special-needs learners facing severe challenges in non-adapted learning environments.

Course content
