Webinar: Meeting the needs of our Indigenous students with disability
Captions will be added to this recording shortly.
ADCET presented this webinar in May 2019. Sharon Kerr, Leader Education and Training with the Centre for Disability Studies was the presenter.
If you have questions about how your institution can better support the access needs and engagement of Indigenous students with a disability, this webinar is for you.
Sharon Kerr with over 30 years of experience as an educator and support worker has set about trying to find Black answers for her White questions. Under the leadership of her Phd supervisor A/Professor John Gilroy and her Indigenous advisory group, Sharon has undertaken research focusing on:
- Why it is that Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander students with disability are not presenting for support?
- What are the barriers both real and perceived for students who need support?
- How can we mitigate the impact of these barriers?
During this webinar Sharon will share findings of this research and provide the opportunity for input and discussion (technology and time permitting).
