The seminar will be based on a piece of research that was undertaken with several students with various disabilities within the University of the West of Scotland The seminar will focus on how the pedagogical application of a VLE can impact on the learning experience of disabled students. This seminar will be quite interactive and those attending will be expected to participate in a 30 minute workshop exercise.
