MON: (Keynote) Expanding our understanding of openness in the context of disabled students in higher education (Jane Seale)

In this presentation I will argue that if higher education is to be successfully opened up to disabled students, higher education institutions and personnel need to open up to the ‘acceptibility of otherness”. I will exemplify and justify my argument by focusing on three phenomena that present significant barriers to such acceptance: labelling; ableism and invisibility.
