Topics being presented
Topics being presented include Student success, Inclusive teaching & learning enhancement, teaching/learning in a digital world, and professional development of all those who teach.
• We want to share some of the good examples of inclusive education for students with intellectual disabilities across Ireland and other countries.
• We want to give students and graduates with intellectual disabilities a chance to share their experiences of going to college and learn from them.
• We believe this will help to make colleges more inclusive to all students, graduates, lecturers, and professionals with experience in ID in college.
• We hope the symposium will help people making important decisions in Ireland to make colleges more inclusive.
The Inclusive National Higher Education Forum (INHEF) is a national interest group comprised of representatives of higher education providers and other professionals interested in supporting access routes and inclusive education initiatives to learners with intellectual disabilities in the Republic of Ireland.
This symposium seeks to provide a collaborative platform for people in Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) to demonstrate their advances in providing for the diverse student body that reflects Ireland’s post-secondary population’s strengths and needs. Further, it strives to provide a space for persons with Intellectual Disabilities (ID) to relate their educational journeys and to challenge HEIs in advancing their inclusive thinking, acting, planning and policy development.
