Diversity, accessing ability, and LIS education practices

Clayton Copeland, Kim Thompson

Research output: Other contribution to conferencePresentation onlypeer-review


All learners have varying needs/abilities. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and
“designing for diversity” employ a variety of instructional methods to eliminate barriers to learning and offer all students opportunities for learning success. Moreover, by allowing students to “see” the impact of social structure on realities, they impact and effect change toward inclusive societies that are designed by their own diversities. This presentation draws upon examples from LIS courses in Australia and the US to provide perspectives and examples of how to build a “diversity mind-set” in LIS courses and curricula.
