TEDI- Teacher Empowerment for Disability Inclusion

TEDIThe TEDI project (headed by the University of Cape Town in partnership with Christoffel-Blinden Mission) and co-funded by the European Union aims to empower teachers to provide quality education for learners with severe or profound sensory of intellectual impairments through training that is focused on inclusivity, diversity and addressing learners’ disability specific needs.

In doing this TEDI is developing short, face-to-face courses and accompanying online courses (MOOCs) for educators, focusing on the following areas: disability studies in education, the education and care of learners with severe to profound intellectual disabilities, teaching learners with visual impairment, and teaching learners who are D/deaf or hard of hearing.
