Action Research for Inclusion

Dr Leanne Longfellow and Dr Jarek Kriukow provide online professional learning for teachers on action research to support the inclusion of students with disability in schools. This professional learning is in real time, providing you with the opportunity to talk face-to-face with Leanne and Jarek, as well as collaborating in real time with other participants.

Leanne is a former teacher of students with disability and spent many years as a special class, special school teacher and special education co-ordinator. After completing a doctorate in the education of students with disability, and reflecting on her experience of parenting her daughter with disability, she is now a firm believer that inclusive settings benefit all students. Leanne is now an educational consultant, disability advocate and public speaker. She works with teachers to build their confidence and capacity in creating inclusive environments so that students can learn together.
