Innovative summer school: Making physical education inclusive and open to all

The InPhysEd Summer School aims to empower participants to develop and pitch solutions for the challenge of including students with intellectual disability (ID) in physical education classes. Inclusive learning is critical to promoting healthier living among all members of society throughout the course of their lives. This project will help develop inclusive learning through cooperation of teacher trainees, sports, health and science students, and people with ID – all of whom will work together to co-design solutions.

This Summer School is a joint project of the Technical University of Munich and Trinity College Dublin, supported by EIT Campus.

About this Summer School

In this innovative Summer School, people with ID will participate as experts in their own well-being and their experiences of exclusion and inclusion, and they will be central to the design of solutions for including students with ID in physical education. Throughout the summer school, participants with ID, students of sports, health science and associated disciplines, and trainee student teachers in physical education, will develop skills in critically and creatively assessing problems that exist within the delivery of physical education at all school levels. They will also develop competencies in the areas of designing and pitching solutions using an entrepreneurial mindset.

Participants will be split up into interdisciplinary teams and learn methodological skills in ideation, business creation, and product development to create idea concepts. Furthermore participants will be able to make informed decisions about future learning arrangements.
