Supporting your Disabled Students
If you teach students or your daily work involves supporting students’ teaching and learning then these guides provide information about how to support disabled students. We recommend that every member of staff familiarises themselves with The Equality Act as this legislation affects all of us, regardless of our job role and the amount of contact we have with students. It also affects us outside of the university environment and in our wider lives as members of our local and social communities.
We have developed a webpage which showcases the ways in which the university is trying to make its practices inclusive and includes handy tips for how you can make everything from your personal computer right through to your lectures more accessible to all.
The web-based resource Enabling Teachers and Trainers to Improve the Accessibility of Adult Education aims to enable teachers and trainers to ensure that disabled learners are fully integrated into adult education by advising on inclusive teaching/training and assessment strategies.
We are genuinely interested in hearing from any one at the university who would like more information about disability and the services we provide that goes beyond the scope of these guides. Please do get in touch with your questions and suggestions and we will do our best to help.
