Abstract

Widening participation initiatives have increased the diversity of learners and resulted in increasing numbers of students with a wide range of disabilities in Higher Education. The aim of this work is to provide a truly accessible and inclusive learning environment to students with disabilities by suggesting a provisional framework for support. The framework incorporates specially designed training tools that can boost academics' accessibility understanding and awareness, and support them in the creation of accessible and inclusive e-resources. The result will improve the student learning experience and increase the potential for an inclusive learner-centred educational environment.
