“This is a project aimed at the modernization of pedagogical education, especially in higher education. Today, it is necessary to use new training methods using technologies that allow improving the educational process. One of the components of the educational process in current conditions is inclusive education. This allows us to train specialists of the modern level. This monograph, which is aimed at the English-speaking reader, familiarizes with the problems of inclusive education in Ukraine and shows what steps we have already taken,” said Igor Tsependa, rector of Vasyl Stefanyk Precarpathian National University.

This is the first English-language book of its kind on the problems of inclusive education, prepared on the initiative of Ukrainian authors (the main part of which is from PNU – 10 authors, including co-authored articles). The book was published by the well-known scientific publishing house “BRILL” (Netherlands) in March 2024. The monograph includes original and previously published texts (a large part in our “Journal of Vasyl Stefanyk Precarpathian National University”).
