Webinar: Supporting Students with Disabilities
ADCET in partnership with the NCVER is providing a webinar showcasing the finding from a recently released research project 'Supporting tertiary students with disabilities: Exploring the use of individualised and institution-level approaches in practice’.
The webinar will be presented by Dr Annie Venville and Professor Ellie Fossey and will focus on the following implications for practice:
- the provision of institution-level learning supports may be made more visible so as to foster learning environments that are inclusive of tertiary students with disability;
- the provision of relevant and effective reasonable adjustments for individual students could be enhanced with greater emphasis on collaboration among the parties involved, with the student at the centre; and
- enhancing student awareness of available learning supports and increasing transparency about the nature and types of disability support available could reduce the variability in tertiary student experiences of learning support.
This free webinar will take place on Thursday 10 March 2016 from 1pm-2pm (AEDT).
It will be live captioned and available for viewing on the ADCET website afterwards.
