Meaningful student engagement in Higher Education programme
‘The Higher Education Academy announces the launch of a new, year long programme to help HEIs [and FECs with HE provision – I’ve checked! :-)] enhance the engagement of disabled students in the design and delivery of learning and teaching. The programme is open to ten HEIs [and FECs with HE provision] in England and Wales and will help institutions develop opportunities for disabled students to be engaged in dialogue and the decision-making processes related to their learning experience.’ Want to be a part of this programme?
