Title: A case study of teacher perceptions of collaborative teaching as a model for inclusion in a Queensland secondary school
Collaborative team teaching is one of the models of inclusive education currently being enacted in Queensland secondary schools. This research investigates teachers' perceptions, practices and experiences of collaborative team teaching and its efficacy for special needs student outcomes in a secondary school context. Internationally, there has been significant research into models of inclusion to support special needs learners, but a localised study of collaborative teaching has yet to be undertaken. Furthermore, opportunity exists for further research into inclusive practices in secondary school contexts. In collaboration with a South-East Queensland secondary school, this study employs a mixed methods case study methodology to interview and survey teachers and school leadership to gain insights into pedagogical practices to support some of the most vulnerable students in secondary education.
