EDU 380.1 Diversity and Inclusion in Education

Taught in Spanish. This theoretical and practical course focuses on training education professionals to design and implement pedagogical contexts that facilitate the learning of all students, considering their heterogeneity in terms of culture, ethnicity, gender and disability, and how all these aspects interact. In addition, it offers the student a space for critical analysis of cultural assumptions ascribed to diversity.

Students who complete this course will be able to

  • Demonstrate an understanding of the importance of actions and speech in the construction of “otherness”: subjectivities and exclusion.
  • Recognize cultural assumptions related to the concept of diversity: disability, ethnicity, gender and nationality and their relation to the exclusion of quality learning situations.
  • Analyze the ever-changing concepts of diversity, integration, and inclusion from an educational perspective.
  • Design, use, and evaluate pedagogical practices that facilitate inclusive education.


This course is taught at the Pontificia Universidad Católica and may not be offered every semester.
