Summer School: Making physical education inclusive
and open to all

Inclusive learning is critical to promoting healthier living among people with intellectual disabilities (ID). Students in this course work with their target audience to innovate solutions for keeping people with ID active.


The InPhysEd summer school aims to empower participants to develop and pitch solutions for the challenge of including students with intellectual disabilities (ID) in physical education classes. This programme is based on the understanding that inclusive learning spaces and early educational interventions are needed to promote healthier living, social integration and well-being for people with ID.

The programme will bring together teacher trainees, sports students, health and science students, and people with ID, to co-design innovative, inclusive learning solutions. In particular, participants will develop solutions for including students with ID in physical education classes – and will share their ideas with educational stakeholders from ministries, schools and universities.
