Community Conversation around Joint UBC/BCEdAccess Research Project
Project: Addressing Community-Identified Needs in Inclusive Education for Students with Disabilities and Complex Learning Needs During and Following the COVID-19 Pandemic
We’ll present the findings from a partnership study focused on the impact of the pandemic on inclusive education in BC. The aim of this forum is to have a dialogue about the priority areas emerging from the research findings. These priorities will then inform the creation of
accessible, plain language tools such as policy briefs and infographics that can be used by individuals and organizations in their advocacy efforts.
