A programme of work is funded under Erasmus + KA2 - Cooperation for the innovation and exchange of good practices in capacity building in the field of Higher Education. Four Chinese universities (Southwest University (Lead) Guangxi Normal University, Tibet University for Nationalities and Sichuan Normal University) and four European universities (Autonomous University Of Barcelona (European Lead), Institutio Politecnico de Lisboa (IPL), Trinity College Dublin and University of Bath) will work in partnership to explore the extent of existing practice regarding inclusive education in Chinese primary schools in the South of China. This initial research will be drawn upon to develop workshops and to develop and validate the first MA in Inclusive Education in China. The project is working with a broad concept of inclusion which incorporates disability, ethnicity, gender and social class.
The project involves partnership work between 8 universities who will work together to create the knowledge and infrastructure needed to develop the first ever masters course on inclusive education in China. The project is funded by the EU Commissions ERASMUS + programme which aims to build the capacity of higher education institutions to support their regions to develop and prosper.
