Creating inclusive professional learning
All employees (with or without disability) need to be able to participate in professional learning on the same basis. The purpose of this resource is to build awareness and capacity of course authors, presenters and providers to design and host professional learning events that are not only compliant with standards, but truly usable and open to all. It has been developed to provide firstly, design implications and then secondly, delivery implications and what actions need to be taken to ensure professional learning is delivered with disability catered for in the appropriate manner. Inclusive professional learning is part of how we make education a great place to work and that our workforce is of the highest calibre.
