…TEFL teacher educators

This page collects all resources for teacher educators who want to integrate the topic of neurodiversity into their seminars, or who are interested in inquiry based learning.

This guide includes introductory information on inclusion and neurodiversity, as well as a sequence of activities that can be used in seminars, courses or professional development opportunities that address neurodiversity in English language teaching. Teacher educators can use the material as it is or adapt it in any way that suits their needs. The guide enhances future English teachers’ awareness of neurodiversity by facilitating direct interaction between students and neurodivergent people, while facilitating the development of research skills through the use of inquiry-based learning and participatory research.
