Supporting You - Supporting Students
Welcome to the Australian Disability Clearinghouse on Education and Training (ADCET)
In order to facilitate successful outcomes and improve the educational experience for students with disability, ADCET provides information, advice and resources to Disability Practitioners, Teachers and Students on inclusive practices within the post-secondary education sector.
Webinar: Inclusive practice as the standard in Higher Education: Opportunities and challenges
Professor Denise Wood
This presentation will draw on the findings from a national funded learning and teaching project which has drawn on evidence from usability, accessibility and learning analytics data to make the case for a more inclusive approach to learning in teaching in higher education. The findings show that inclusive practice involves more than accessibility considerations in isolation from other factors that impact on our diverse students’ experiences. Building on this work and initiatives being implemented at Central Queensland University, the presentation will explore the broader policy and practice implications at the institution level and a proposed model informed by the evidence from the research and the literature, which seeks to demonstrate the changes required to achieve the longer term goal of inclusion being the standard practice in education rather than an exception. The session will provide opportunity for discussion among participants about the challenges and opportunities the proposed approach offers in addressing the needs of an increasingly diverse student population.
When: Thursday, October 8, 2015 (1:00pm - 2.00pm (Australian Eastern Daylight Saving Time - AEDST) . Further information »
The session will be live captioned and available on ADCET afterwards.
