Call for evidence: reasonable adjustments and inclusive educational environments

Deadline for submissions is Wednesday 1 November at 5pm.

ECU is calling for examples from the higher education sector across the UK and colleges in Scotland on equality and diversity work around the protected characteristic of disability.

Specifically, ECU is calling for short case studies of work in teaching and learning to make reasonable adjustments and develop inclusive education environments.

The outcomes of the case studies will form part of an online hub of resources for institutions, which will provide guidance on reasonable adjustments and inclusive educational environments at key moments in the student life cycle.

What sort of examples can be submitted?

We want to get a picture of the wide range of work happening around reasonable adjustments and inclusive educational environments, including approaches, initiatives, policies and projects, large or small, and across the full range of university services and functions and colleges in Scotland.

We are interested to hear about ‘best practice’ and projects which demonstrate innovative approaches or solutions, clear impact, and transferable tools. We are also keen to hear about less successful projects and areas of challenge, which can be anonymised if you prefer.

We are particularly keen to hear about:

  • the aims at the start of the project
  • how the success of the project has been measured
  • whether any elements of the project worked particularly well, or did not work in the way that was intended
  • any learning points or reflections that could be shared with other institutions

Submitting your evidence

Wherever possible we would be grateful if evidence could be submitted by completing this form and returning it by email to anna.bradshaw@ecu.ac.uk or by post to:

This standardised format will help us to review and compare work across the sector.

However please contact us if you would like alternative formats, or if you prefer to arrange a discussion either prior to or instead of filling out the form.

The deadline for submissions is Wednesday 1 November at 5pm.
