About Thomas Barow

Research In my research, I am dealing with special and inclusive education in a pedagogical, didactical, social and historical perspective, both nationally and internationally. Recently, I have been researching special educational needs assessment and categorisation processes. For the time being, I am studying questions concerning education of persons with intellectual disability.

I am associate professor in education and member of the research environment Platform for Research in Inclusive Education and School Development (PRIS). Since 2020, I am Chair of the Collegium for Inclusion, Equality and Special Education. My CV including a list of publications can be downloaded from this page.

Teaching I am teaching, supervising and examining in the special education programmes (second cycle). In this context, I am responsible for the master thesis courses in special education.

As Director of Studies for the programmes and courses in special education, I have an overarching responsibility for the teacher education in this field. Moreover, as Chair of the Programme Advisory Board for the Special Educational Needs Coordinator Programme and the Special Education Teacher Programme, I work with development and quality assurance of the programmes.
