The idea of diversity and social inclusion has become a common approach in the planning and management of primary, secondary and higher education schools in many international contexts. The scientific literature points out, however, the challenges regarding the frontiers of diversity and social inclusion. The main objectives of this book are the following: (1) to provide an analysis of educational inclusion practices, (2) to identify university students’ voices on diversity and social inclusion, (3) to assess teachers’ performance in an international online training context, (4) to promote a model of curriculum development on diversity and social inclusion, and (5) to assess university students’ attitudes on diversity and social inclusion. Knowledge of these conceptual nuances is useful for educators as they face the challenges of diversity and social inclusion practice.


• to explore the perception of elementary school teachers about inclusive education practices. • to gather the voices of student teachers undertaking a master’s programme on diversity and social inclusion • to assess performance of diversity and social inclusion teachers in an online inservice training international context • to propose a holistic diversity and social inclusion model for curriculum and classroom development • to assess cultural diversity and social inclusion attitudes among undergraduates

Target Audience

• This proposed book addresses the topical issue of diverse and social inclusion for fostering professional competencies in a target audience of education students and teachers and social workers. • Use of diversity and social inclusion experiences to develop students’ critical thinking skills in the college context and teachers´ competencies in the school system
