Description:
This article is based on a conference paper given by the first two authors at the ESRC/TLRP project conference ‘Enhancing the Quality and Outcomes of Disabled Students’ Learning in Higher Education’ at the University of Edinburgh on 24th October 2007 and draws on material in forthcoming chapters from the project (Fuller and Healey, forthcoming; Roberts, forthcoming). This article summarises the findings relating to learning, teaching and assessment of the ESRC Teaching and Learning Research Programme (TLRP) project ‘Enhancing the Quality and Outcomes of Disabled Students’ Learning in Higher Education’, led by Professor Mary Fuller. The project has sought to remedy this research gap by documenting disabled students’ experiences of higher education in the students’ own words. The study draws on longitudinal interviews with 31 disabled students about their experiences of learning, teaching and assessment across four universities. It also supplements these findings with material from a survey of 548 disabled and non-disabled students at one of the universities.
