Special Pedagogy students do not attend seminars, ie they do not have to pass the exam. Students of Special Education do not take seminars, i.e. they do not have to pass the credit for the exam. Students of special pedagogy can work with case studies (SOURCE: Bytešníková, I. et al. (2019). Here we are! Case studies in special pedagogy - a special pedagogue and his role. Brno: MU.) and orient themselves on the 2 selected cases in their portfolio tasks, i.e. describe the individual teaching of pupils according to the following structure. STRUCTURE OF THE PORTFOLIO ASSIGNMENT A. Choose a school whose SEP is available to you (i.e. you do an internship at the school, the school has SEP on the website, etc.).
