22 SES 11 B, Widening Access to Higher Education for Diverse Groups: Age and Disability as Risk or Opportunity for Promoting an Inclusive University
This case study illustrates how the decisions of the ULLL Romanian policy makers` are influenced by the outcomes of the research focused on Access and Progression for the disabled youth, through practical activities involved in a university project. The case study analyses the Romanian project „Development and Implementation of a Pilot Programme for Increasing the Access to Higher Education for People with Disabilities”, which aims to optimize the access of people with disabilities to higher education. A research study, based on questionnaires, has been conducted in the three partner universities aiming to analyse how students with disabilities are supported in their educational process. 300 students from the partner universities will benefit of mentoring activities and training to use an e-learning platform. The project activities are carried out by academic staff involved in the project, and who are both as researchers and as practitioners. The dialogue between researchers and practitioners will be facilitated during the activities which seek to train mentors who will work with disabled students or teachers in higher education who will use the adapted ICT tools developed within the project.
