Subject: Ableism in the Curriculum -- roundtable discussion 16/02/2018 at University of Westminster
Below are details of an event we are holding at Westminster. Everyone is welcome and it would be great to see some of you there. Please feel free to circulate to anyone who you think might be interested.
Ableism in the curriculum: a roundtable discussion
Friday 16 February 2018, 13:00-15:00 in Clipstone 1.108 (115 New Cavendish Street), University of Westminster
The event is open to everyone but registration is essential. Registration via Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/ableism-in-the-curriculum-tickets-42623886191
What do we mean by ableism in the curriculum? What are the ethical and social considerations that we need to address to counter ableism in the curriculum? What would a curriculum that is not ableist be like? What are practical things that we can do in our classrooms that would move us toward a non-ableist curriculum?
Roundtable discussants include Nicole Brown (UCL Institute of Education), Sarah Golightley (University of Edinburgh), Rachel O’Brien (National Union of Students).
The venue is wheelchair accessible with accessible toilets nearby. If you face other access barriers or require more detailed accessibility information, please let us know so we can support your full participation.
