Title: Let’s Bring the Elephant into the Room! - Reshaping the inclusive environment in further & higher education
When: March 20th & 21st 2018
Where: Croke Park Conference Centre, Dublin
As we change our focus from an add-on individual model of disability support towards a more inclusive cross-campus approach, this conference will explore the challenges of this strategic move and examine best practice approaches on the institution, faculty and student support levels.
We are seeking conference contributions from academics, students, policy makers, faculty staff and disability support professionals with an interest in fully including all students, including those with disabilities, in all aspects of the college experience. Contributions are particularly sought around the themes of:
- Building Institutional Support for Inclusion
- Back to Basics: innovations in disability support services
- Embedding employability into further and higher education for students with disabilities
- Managing the move towards Universal Design for Learning
- The role of technology in inclusive environments
Selected contributors will recieve 20% off the standard registration fees below.
