THEME: GENDER AND INCLUSION IN EDUCATION
British Council Nepal is hosting its 3rd Annual Education Symposium on 28 January 2020. The theme of this year’s event is Inclusive Education. The event aims to bring together policy makers, planners, administrators, head teachers, teachers, researchers, NGO and private sector and development partners to share different perspectives and discuss issues around Inclusive Education in Nepal, South Asia and the UK.
How confident are we in saying that our education system, policies and classroom teaching promote inclusive practices? We all believe in inclusion, but do we have a common understanding of what we mean by inclusion and inclusive practices? The sustainable development goal 4 aims at 'ensuring equitable and quality education and promoting life-long learning for all'. Where are we in implementing this goal? What are other countries doing in achieving this goal? What evidence is there from current global practice that supports our ambition? What success stories can we share?
The British Council believes that inclusion involves an integrated approach to policy, educational culture and classroom practice and that good practice is an ongoing process. Among the many issues that countries face around making their education systems inclusive, many say that access, engagement, empowerment and enablement are the key issues. Do we agree? What do these terms mean and how can they be applied?
British Council Nepal’s upcoming Education Symposium aims to bring together like-minded organisations with a passion for promoting and implementing inclusive education for discussing these numerous questions. We also aim to come together to find solutions in supporting quality learning approaches in our different contexts.
AIMS AND OBJECTIVES:
- Create a platform for British Council and other education stakeholders to present evidence from researches and projects related to Gender and Inclusion in Education
- Facilitate informed discussion about issues and challenges around creating and implementing inclusive education policies in Nepal and South Asia
- Provide opportunities for networking, information sharing and constructive dialogues around Gender and Inclusion in education
