13th Annual Disability Lecture
The Power of Design: Exclusion or Inclusion?

Dr Sue Kroeger, Director of Disability Resources at the University of Arizona

How do you translate the theory of inclusive design into a pragmatic reality? Dr Sue Kroeger will describe her experience of managing the transition from making changes to teaching on an individual level to the transformative idea of inclusivity as an institutional concept. The intention is to energise and inspire those attending to consider accessibility and inclusion issues from the very beginning of academic planning.
