Dundee University promotes inclusive learning through staff training and award

Submissions are currently being invited for the University of Dundee’s inclusive practice award. This award recognises good practice across the University that removes barriers to access for disabled students or others protected by the Equality Act. It is open to College and SASS-based staff and takes the form of a £1,000 practice development fund. The deadline for submission this year is the 29th March. Further information is available from Shirley Hill (s.hill@dundee.ac.uk) or Lorraine Walsh (l.walsh@dundee.ac.uk) and from: http://www.dundee.ac.uk/library/teachingexcellence/supportingscholarship/awards-201112/

In addition, as part of the InspirED programme, Disability Services is running staff training sessions this semester on supporting students with hearing impairments (on the 19th March) and also on inclusive learning and teaching practice (on the 18th April) . Additional training is planned for next academic session on supporting students with dyslexia and also on the provision of alternative and accessible formats of teaching and other materials. For further details of all of our staff training opportunities or to request specific training for your School/Service, please email disability @dundee.ac.uk
