Please join us for a working lunch where we will learn about the principles of Universal Design, review the current process by which new students apply to Residences at McGill, and brainstorm ways to apply UD to the process to improve its accessibility. Your feedback will help us improve our first interface with students in meaningful ways for the 2013-14 admissions cycle.

Aide? Une notion à revoir. Pouvoir, privilège et la redéfinition de nos rôles de conseillers sous le modèle de la conception universelle
38e Congrès annuel de l’AQETA
Le modèle médical a longtemps nourri la nature de nos interventions au postsecondaire dans le domaine du trouble d’apprentissage. Si le cadre théorique du processus de production du handicap (PPH) est, en grande partie, parvenu à redéfinir la nature des interventions et leur fondement, il n’en reste pas moins que bien des indices continuent de rappeler aux usagers l’évolution historique des services et l’impact qu’a encore l’approche médicale sur les pratiques professionnelles.
Please join us for the closing of the second annual Disabilities Awareness Week. The winner of the OSD short film competition will be announced at this time.
To be delivered by Professor Kathryn Church, Director of the School of Disability Studies, Ryerson University (Public lecture). Webcast available
