Survey Report: Beyond COVID-19
Survey Report: Beyond COVID-19. The impact of COVID-19 on disability practitioners in the tertiary education sector
In July 2020, the Australian Department of Education, Skills and Employment provided grant funding to ADCET to facilitate a nationally cohesive response to address challenges of COVID-19 for disability practitioners from Universities and Vocational Education and Training sectors in tertiary education.
The first step was to survey sector regarding the impact of COVID-19 to:
- identify the key issues and needs for disability practitioners and students with disability;
- capture and collate the key learnings and opportunities; and,
- guide the sector nationally post COVID-19 towards improved inclusive practice informed by the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL).
Thank you to the Practitioners from across Australia who shared their passion and wisdom with us. The report outlines the responses and critical findings from the survey and identified 18 key recommendation that will inform ADCETs collaborative work with the National Disability Coordination Officers program to support the sector going forward.
