As we shift away from supporting students through Disabled Student’s Allowances, HE providers now have a greater role in fulfilling their duty in respect of reasonable adjustments.
The Department for Education have just published best practice guidance on inclusive teaching & learning aimed at universities, colleges & independent higher education providers looking how institutions can best support students with disabilities throughout their studies. Significant work is already being undertaken across the sector but there is still much more room for HE providers to develop a more strategic and flexible approach to delivering inclusive practice.
Attend this Westminster Briefing event to hear practical guidance on how your institution can embed a comprehensive approach to inclusive learning and teaching. You will have the opportunity to explore how you can drive institutional change and hear good practice for you to take back and implement within your setting.
Key issues to be addressed:
- Embedding a comprehensive approach to inclusive teaching & learning
- Driving a change in culture across the whole institution
- Identifying & mitigating the risks in providing ‘reasonable adjustments’
- Flexible methods of teaching, assessment & service provision
- Opportunities for partnership working
- Ensuring student & staff aware of the basic tenants of an inclusive approach
- Evaluating the effect of inclusive learning
- Successful approaches to inclusive teaching & learning
- What changes can you make in inclusive practice to improve student outcomes?
- Reasonable adjustments at your institution
Morning refreshments will be served upon arrival with a networking lunch to follow. Any special needs or dietary requirements should be notified to us upon booking.
