This session will deconstruct what inclusive education means in today's classrooms and communities. We will also discuss common misunderstandings and myths. We will leave with ideas and possibilities of inclusive learning communities and all who benefit.
This workshop is being held in partnership with the University of New Brunswick Faculty of Education and the New Brunswick Association for Community Living Inc.
Originally from Edmonton, and now based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Shelley Moore is a highly sought after inclusive education researcher, collaborator, consultant and storyteller. She has worked with school districts and community organizations throughout both Canada and the United States. Her research has been featured at international conferences including the Council of Exceptional Children (CEC), the International Reading Association (IRA), the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE), The American Education Research Association (AERA) and the Canadian Society for Studies in Education (CSSE). Shelley’s interactive presentations are constructed based on contexts of specific schools and communities and integrate theory and effective practices of inclusion, special education, curriculum and technology. Her first book entitled, “One Without the Other” was released in July 2016 to follow up her TEDx talk hosted in Langley in January 2016 highlighting the foundational influence in her work, about presuming competence. Shelley completed an undergraduate degree in Special Education at the University of Alberta, her masters at Simon Fraser University, and is currently a Social Science and Human Resources Council (SSHRC) funded PhD scholar at the University of British Columbia. She is also the recent recipient of the Engagement award, a national competition highlighting SSHRC funded research through story.
