This seminar will consider strategic institutional measures and interventions for building successful educational experiences for all students, including those with disabilities. In addition to policy and institutional measures presentations will take account of effective teaching practices. Drawing upon recent research, and evidence-informed practice, the seminar will look at what factors students say are important in promoting or inhibiting success and academic achievement. Critical points in the student’s experience will be examined through the use of case studies.
Evidence of research findings which examine staff views on the benefits and difficulties of delivering an appropriate, successful and inclusive curriculum will also be discussed in small groups. Finally the seminar will provide a forum for identifying and sharing resources aimed at providing enriching educational experiences for students and thus improving retention rates.
