Inclusive Education - Position Paper: A road map for disability support in higher education
Thursday, 16th August 2018
The Inclusive Education Road Map is a series of outputs produced by the Association for Higher Education Access and Disability (AHEAD), in collaboration with the Disability Advisers Working Network (DAWN). It brings together two years of research on the inclusion of students with disabilities in higher education and concludes that an inclusive approach based on Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles would provide an effective framework to include and improve the retention of, not only students with disabilities, but a diverse range of students including migrants, mature students, international students, and students from different socio-economic backgrounds.
This position paper which is one output of the Road Map series, outlines the benefits of taking such an approach to catering for diversity in higher education.
