Session at the Inclusive symposium hosted by International School Dhaka
International School Dhaka (ISD) hosted the Inclusion Symposium for the first time which focused on working towards inclusion for all learners in every classroom in Dhaka. The symposium was a unique opportunity for educators and experts to learn and discuss important topics related to diversity and inclusion through hands-on interactive workshops and dialogues.
Shuchona Foundation was invited to facilitate a session at the symposium on 03 March 2023. The symposium provided participants with opportunities to rise together by expanding ISD’s collective knowledge, strengthening their resilience, and deepening their capacity for inclusion for all learners. The day was a great professional development opportunity. The symposium held other workshops and sessions pertaining to areas in a neurodiverse classroom management; use of brain breaks; leadership in inclusion; wellbeing and social and emotional learning (SEL) in schools; catering for multilingual learners; personality types in inclusion (the enneagram); and inclusion in Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice (DEIJ).
Throughout the day, resource persons from different national and international organizations facilitated numerous sessions on the diverse areas of inclusion. Shuchona Foundation colleagues from Content Development team, Nazish Arman, Lead Coordinator, and Pranay Bhuiyan, Assistant Coordinator, conducted the session titled ‘Strategies for Inclusion: Teaching-Learning and Assessment’, where Ms. Arman presented an overview of Shuchona Foundation and its current priorities and engagements and Mr. Bhuiyan presented an overview of the manual developed by the Foundation for the Directorate of Primary Education, Ministry of Primary and Mass Education. The session focused on behaviour management strategies and addressed the diverse psychosocial needs of school children from the lens of inclusive pedagogy.
