Abstract

[From the introduction]:
The aim of this doctoral thesis was to consider how, if at all, professional staff development practitioners in Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in the United Kingdom (UK) design and deliver equality and diversity (E&D) training which encapsulates and recognises the lived experience of people with an impairment. The thesis is written in such a way as to engage with two principal audiences. The first being the academic community, specifically those researching in the field of Disability Studies, (the field is subject of further exploration in Chapter two) for whom the thesis aimed to contribute new knowledge. The second audience is the professional staff development practitioner in Higher Education (HE) who might be inspired to review their own practice in light of this research.
