What do we mean by ableism in the curriculum? What are the ethical and social considerations that we need to address to counter ableism in the curriculum? What would a curriculum that is not ableist be like? What are practical things that we can do in our classrooms that would move us toward a non-ableist curriculum?
Roundtable discussants include Nicole Brown (UCL Institute of Education), Sarah Golightley (University of Edinburgh), Fiona Kumari Campbell (University of Dundee), Rachel O’Brien (National Union of Students) and Becca-Grace Shrader (Westminster Students’ Union).
