In this latest instalment, Dr Kerr Castle (Quality Enhancement and Standards Specialist at QAA) sits down with Sean Cullen, lecturer at Brunel University and Student Voice Commissioner for the Disabled Students Commission (DSC), to talk about the experience of disabled students.
Through the course of the episode, Sean shares his own insights and experiences as a disabled student in higher education, while also discussing how providers might enhance their communication with disabled students and why sharing your disability with your provider when starting higher education is so important.
Kerr is also joined by Professor Deborah Johnston, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic Framework) at London Southbank University and a commissioner for the DSC, who talks about the work of the DSC across higher education.
As mentioned in the episode, you might also like to explore our work around supporting successful student transitions, which offers positive approaches and practical solutions to help support transitions to and through higher education. We also have resources on creating inclusive subject communities, which guide the exploration of ways to embed inclusion and accessibility in the curriculum to enhance the student experience.
