Webinar: Supporting Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder in Higher Education (NCSEHE)
This webinar was hosted by ADCET and the Australian Tertiary Education Network on Disability (ATEND), in partnership with the National Centre for Student Equity in Higher Education (NCSEHE) in April, 2016.
The presenter was Dr Ceridwen Owen (Senior Lecturer and Program Director (Architecture) in the School of Architecture & Design at the University of Tasmania) and focused on the design of the built environment and how this affects students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) drawing on the results of the self-directed photography study undertaken by students at the University of Tasmania.
The presentation highlighted aspects of the built environment that are both barriers and enablers of inclusion in higher education and identify priorities for modification and future development of campus and learning environments. Dr Owen’s research (download from the link below) was funded through the NCSEHE via the Centre’s 2015 Student Equity in Higher Education Research Grants program.
