PAST EVENT

UNIFESP’S ACCESSIBILITY PORTAL: INCLUSIVE AND OPEN DESIGN TO SUPPORT INCLUSION IN HIGHER EDUCATION

In this INCLUDE webinar, Professors Leandro Key Higuchi Yanaze, Maria da Conceição dos Santos and Cícera Aparecida Lima Malheiro from the University Federal of São Paulo (Unifesp) in Brazil share how their university has enhanced clarity and cohesion while promoting inclusive education in a context of working across a multi-campus university. Using UDL as a conceptual framework, colleagues have developed an Accessibility Portal encouraging academics and students to act as a virtual learning community. The Portal promotes “recognition, respect for difference and appreciation of human diversity and provides awareness, information and training for teachers, students and the entire community.” You are encouraged to read the INCLUDE website blog where Leandro, Maria and Cícera provide a rich contextualisation of their work and to view the recording of this webinar that has already taken place. You can also peruse the associated slides by downloading the document in PPT format.
