Inclusive and Supportive Education Conference (ISEC) 2021
The UCL Centre for Inclusive Education and nasen will host the Inclusive and Supportive Education Conference (ISEC) this August. The event will take place online between the 3rd – 5th August 2021. It typically attracts more than 500 visitors worldwide and runs every five years. This year’s theme will focus on 'Closing the Research to Practice Gap'. This follows on from the Inclusion and Equity theme in 2015, which took place in Lisbon. This event has been moved to 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Closing the Research to Practice Gap
This year’s event will explore interrelationship between researchers, educational practitioners and parents examining the unique role each has in applying theory to practice and creating environments for a lasting and positive change.
Commonly asked questions will be addressed, such as:
- Do researchers share the same priorities as practitioners?
- Do academics and teachers share a common language?
- What are the barriers to productive and successful co-operation?
