Round Table Symposium on A Charter for Inclusive Teaching & Learning in Higher Education
Royal Hospital Kilmainham, Dublin
Tuesday 28th April 2009, 9.30 am - 4.30 pm
Good Practice = Inclusion = Everyone
This symposium aims to produce a Charter for Inclusive Teaching and Learning for the benefit of all students. Your expertise, ideas and creativity are the steps to build this charter. Endorsed by the sector, it will guide faculty and services in higher education and assure the quality of teaching and learning for all students. Higher education is rapidly changing and has an increasingly diverse student body. It has successfully encouraged students with a disability and there are now over 3,600 disabled students throughout the sector. Furthermore, we can anticipate that this number will grow as more students with disabilities at second level have the expectation of third level and beyond. This symposium will provide academic and other staff an opportunity to get actively involved in articulating minimum standards of teaching and learning practice to ensure students with disabilities are included. The symposium will not focus specifically on disability, but rather on good, innovative practice that works for all students. This practical, interactive symposium is intended for Registrars, staff involved in access, members of academic faculties, teaching and learning, centres of excellence, libraries and other key services.
