The event is now over, you will find a summary below.
As a standing agenda item, colleagues began by discussing updates with regards to the Disabled Students’ Allowance. The group then planned the practitioners’ conference, which is to be held later in the academic year. At the last meeting, the theme of Universal Design for Inclusive Learning (UDIL) was proposed for the event and colleagues developed this theme, considering possible speakers and workshops. Members are keen to develop knowledge and best practice around UDIL and alongside the practitioners’ conference, they will also be developing a best practice document outlining examples of embedding UDIL across the whole student journey through HE. This will be advanced using research previously conducted by the chair of the forum in this area.
