Since 2014, the Faculty of Education has hosted an annual cohort from the Ministry of Education in Thailand. Groups of around 70 staff, selected by the Bureau of Special Education Administration Office, Thailand, attend our customised program ‘Early Childhood Education – Early Intervention and Inclusive Education’.
The program includes a 5 day workshop based at Monash University followed by a 2 week guided professional learning immersion program within an inclusive education school in the Melbourne area. Participants are placed in small groups in selected schools, with support provided to each group provided by a team of faculty experts. At the end of this period, they return to the faculty to discuss and compare their experiences, sharing their learnings with each other.
