Supporting tertiary students with disabilities: individualised and institution-level approaches in practice

Event Details
10 March 2016 12:10 pm

This webinar, a joint ADCET and National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER) event, will present findings from a recently released research project, Supporting tertiary students with disabilities: Exploring the use of individualised and institution-level approaches in practice.

Presented by two of the researchers, Dr Annie Venville and Professor Ellie Fossey, the webinar 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.
  • 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.
