Ensuring students with a disability can access the curriculum

Tuesday 2nd June, 13.30-15.00, HR TR1&2

Tea and Coffee will be available from 13.15

This is the first of a series of sharing practice sessions relating to disabled students.

This session will include three speakers and provide an opportunity for others to share their experience and ask questions about designing teaching, learning and assessment that enables students with a disability to engage in your course.

Leanne Thompson, Disability Manager, SBS
Disability Service,Inclusive Learning Plans and future plans

Leanne will provide an institutional context of services designed for disabled students and how these resources and services can support individual tutors in ‘making reasonable adjustment’ and make use of Inclusive Learning Plans which outline the needs of individual students. At the end she will provide an update regarding future changes to the funding of disabled students via the Disabled Students Allowance (DSA) which will have implications for the design of all our modules as well as plans for further sharing practice sessions.

Neil McLatchie (Psychology) and Neil Drummond (Physics)
Supporting students with sensory impairments

These two colleagues Will share their experience of working with disabled students, the disability service, and support workers to enable students with sensory impairments to access the physics and psychology courses. They will each discuss the practical considerations and provide tangible examples as a basis for discussion about how to take anticipatory action as well as responding to the needs of individuals.

Colleagues from the Assessment Centre will also be present, and along with Leanne will be available for discussion of individual cases after the end of the plenary discussion.
