The field of disability studies is recognised and valued for research and practice across disciplines in the UK and beyond. This symposium aims to explore distinctive approaches to teaching, learning and assessment that have emerged from and with disability studies. It takes place within the context of recent changes to Disabled Student Allowances (DSA), the emergence of the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) and the mantra of embedding inclusive practice.
