Why lecturers shouldn’t use sarcasm in class and other important questions about inclusive practice; a debate about the social model between students and academic staff draft
Leeds Beckett operates the Social Model of Disability which says that disability is caused by the way society is organised, rather than by a person’s impairment or difference. In this panel debate, lecturers and students will discuss the implications of a social model understanding of disability in a lecture environment. The panellists are Dr Alison Wilde (Senior Lecturer in Education and Childhood Studies), Dr Tom Muskett (Senior Lecturer in Psychology) and Kelly-Anne Watson (VP Welfare, Leeds Beckett Students’ Union).
Refreshments served outside the lecture theatre from 17:00.
