Workshop

VERSCHOBEN: Doing Diversity: Access conundrums

In this workshop we want to explore the options in higher education teaching that make access possible for disabled and chronically sick people.

Equal access for disabled and chronically sick people is a demand that is generally accepted as common sense. At the same time, access is often positioned as an impossibility due to a lack of resources, and structures based on normative assumptions seem rigid and unchangeable. On top of this, different access needs and requirements can stand in conflict with each other and fluctuate in relation to time and space. In a higher education context, additional challenges such as a normative understanding of time and academic performance pressure can stand in the way of achieving equal access. In this workshop we want to explore the options in higher education teaching that make access possible within these areas of tension. We will discuss what shifts in thinking are necessary so that access is understood as a structural demand, not simply an individual one. What power dynamics need to be navigated to achieve this shift in a higher education setting? Together with participants, we use disability studies to examine case studies from a higher education context in order to talk about the meanings of ‘access’, discuss the conundrums that this term can generate and attempt finding solutions
