ADCET webinar: Realising Disability Inclusion
ADCET is proud to partner with the Australian Tertiary Education Network on Disability (ATEND) for this webinar.

Professor Carol Evans (Honorary visiting professor at Cardiff University and visiting professorial fellow at the University of Southampton) will explore the current context of disability inclusion defined as the ‘extent to which higher education institutions (HEIs) support equal access to university and equal opportunities to do well for staff and students with disabilities compared to their non-disabled peers’.  Carol will present a conceptual framework – the DIIF (Disability Inclusion Institutional Framework) as a way of conceptualising the key elements that need to come together to support disability inclusion (DI) for all within higher education (HE). In supporting inclusion for disabled students, the framework highlights the essential need for an integrated approach to DI that addresses staff and student experiences of DI. Also, Carol will introduce a toolkit to support thinking around scaling up of DI, and identify the potential of ‘big ticket items to make a significant contribution to enhancing opportunities for SSwD, by creating more genuinely inclusive contexts, that enable challenge in the right areas.  Finally, Carol would like to explore the potential of collaborative opportunities to take this work forward with you.
