Sharing information about disabled students
Clare Taylor - Disabled Student Assessment & Support
Navigating barriers: exploring how information about disabled students is shared with staff across the University.
The research approach
There are almost 8,000 disabled students registered with Disability Services. The University has a legal duty to ensure that these students can fully access their teaching, learning and assessment.
To navigate barriers disabled students encounter, Disability Services identifies adjustments. These are shared with the Disability Contact in the student’s school, who then disseminates it to relevant academic staff.
However, feedback from disabled students suggests that they do not consistently receive the adjustments they are entitled to.
This project will identify the barriers to sharing information about students’ adjustments and how this impacts the experience of disabled students.
