17th Annual Disability Lecture

Universal Design for Learning - *cancelled*

Thursday 19 March, 5.30pm, St John's College

 

 

It is with regret that we have to annouce the cancellation of this year's Annual Disability Lecture which was due to be held on Thursday 19 March 2020. This is due to one of the speakers being given specialist medical instruction not to travel, due to an underlying medical condition which makes them more vulnerable to infection.

We hope that our speakers will be able to visit us in the future to discuss the important topic of inclusion in teaching and learning.
