9780415629416: E-learning and Disability in Higher Education: Accessibility Research and Practice

Most people working within the higher education sector understand the importance of making e-learning accessible to students with disabilities, yet it is not always clear exactly how this should be accomplished.  E-Learning and Disability in Higher Education evaluates current accessibility practice and critiques the extent to which 'best' practices can be confidently identified and disseminated. This second edition has been fully updated and includes a focus on research that seeks to give 'voice' to disabled students in a way that provides an indispensible insight into their relationship with technologies and the institutions in which they study.

Examining the social, educational, and political background behind making online learning accessible in higher and further education, E-Learning and Disability in Higher Education considers the roles and perspectives of the key stake-holders involved in e-learning: lecturers, professors, instructional designers, learning technologists, student support services, staff developers, and senior managers and administrators.

About the Author:

Dr. Jane K. Seale is a Professor of Inclusive Education in the Graduate School of Education, University of Exeter, UK.


 

Review:

"In this second edition of Seale’s go-to text, she accurately re-imagines the disability and e-learning landscape in accordance with shifting paradigms, moving away from a role-based emphasis towards a stakeholder approach that emphasises a more socially inclusive perspective. This book should be read in its entirety by anyone working in e-learning or accessibility, and provides a useful resource for anyone teaching in higher education today."―Dr. Simon Ball, Senior Advisor at Jisc TechDis

"This book makes a powerful argument to transform accessibility into a more participatory and inclusive concept. Drawing on Freire's notion of critical pedagogy, Seale offers a critical, detailed analysis of research surrounding accessibility practice and shows that there are alternatives, such as participatory research, that foster ‘digital inclusion’ and increase agency for people with disabilities."―Dr. Alan R. Foley, Associate Professor of Instructional Technology, Syracuse University

"Seale provides a very comprehensive yet personalized, practical approach to the topic of e-learning, disability, and higher education. This is an important read for instructors, researchers, disability service providers and, of course, students with disabilities in higher education."―Dr. Robert A. Stodden, Director and Professor, Center on Disability Studies, University of Hawaii at Manoa
