Disability Awareness Training Manual

The 2013-2018 Disability Action Plan has identified a need for more disability awareness within the University community, and to this aim a Disability Awareness Training Manual is currently being produced by the Disability Services Office.

A draft was presented to the Student Disability Liaison Officers in 2012 for review and feedback, and a first release is anticipated during Semester 1, 2014.

The Disability Awareness Training Manual will include Learning Modules covering the following:

  • Disability
  • Legislation
  • Types of Disabilities
  • Reasonable Adjustments
  • Inclusive Teaching and Accessible Learning

The Disability Awareness Training Manual will be available for all general and academic staff, and new staff will be encouraged to include the manual as part of their induction training.
