Limited Capacity seats available

Open Session Limited to 20 Participants (First-Come, First-In)

For almost 15 years the BC Initiative for Inclusive Post-Secondary Education (IPSE) has been working in collaboration with Universities and Colleges to include adults with intellectual disabilities in the regular academic and social life of campus. Admission to post secondary is based on the individual student’s desire to study and not on any minimum academic requirements.  

This approach to post-secondary education has emerged as a “practical and moral imperative” to addressing the marginalization of people with intellectual disabilities and has been recognized internationally as a best practice.  

At the same time, this movement for inclusion has raised questions about the role of post-secondary education in Canadian society and has challenged assumptions about who belongs at post-secondary.  

In this session we will introduce participants to the BC Initiative for IPSE and discuss how this movement for inclusion is revealing new ideas about teaching and learning at post-secondary campuses across BC.
