Pathways15 Online: Recordings now available
Pathways15 Online: Advancing Inclusion in 2020 and Beyond was held from Monday, 30 November until Friday, 4 December 2020.
The Australian Tertiary Education Network on Disability (ATEND) partnered with the Australian Disability Clearinghouse on Education and Training (ADCET) to deliver the 2020 Pathways15 Online Conference. The Pathways Online Committee recognised the important contribution of industry, government and communities in creating an inclusive society for people with disability. Pathways15 was a free event open to disability practitioners, academics, researchers, NDCOs, students with disability and those with an interest in addressing barriers for people with disability participating in tertiary education, training and subsequent employment.
The 2020 conference was a Pathways like no other. COVID-19 deeply impacted our global community. For the first time in its almost 30 year history, we could not physically come together to attend a Pathways Conference, but we still came together remotely, through the power of technology, for a virtual event. We explored current and emerging issues, drawing on the learnings we took from them and our existing experience to continuously improve our knowledge and our practice.
The themes for 2020 included:
- Challenges, Innovations and Good Practice during COVID-19
- Mental Health and Wellbeing
- Universal Design For Learning
- Employment following tertiary education
- Inclusive Policy and Practice: Implementation and Outcomes
- Other innovative practices
