The following materials have been written as a framework for academic staff to reflect on various aspects of the delivery of curricula, and to consider possible changes to practices, which would meet more effectively the teaching and learning needs of students with a range of impairments.
They have been developed as part of the Teachability: Creating an Accessible Curriculum for Students with Disabilities project.
This work has been funded by the Scottish Higher Education Funding Council and has been undertaken by a partnership of five West of Scotland institutions of Higher Education - the Glasgow Caledonian University, the Glasgow School of Art, the University of Glasgow, the University of Paisley, and the University of Strathclyde. Within each institution, there have been further key partnerships, namely, of Teaching and Learning staff, Special Needs Services staff, members of a great range of academic departments, and, most importantly, students with various impairments, whose incisive comments are incorporated in the text.
It is hoped and intended that the materials will be of value to academic colleagues in a staff development context, and that their use would typically be facilitated by staff representing expertise in the areas of curriculum development and special needs.
Next: Why use these materials?
