This wiki is the initial stage of a project to build a “core module” for a UK resource for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) accessibility information. This core module work intends to build the collaboration and community required to produce a first-stage structured searchable knowledge base for staff and students with differing technical and STEM knowledge to communicate and collaborate more effectively.
The main aim is to enable disabled students and those supporting them to challenge faulty assumptions, to build on current good practice, rather than re-inventing the wheel, and to better enable staff teaching STEM subjects to work with technical and specialist support staff to enable students’ learning in a timely and cost effective manner.
We hope that, ultimately, this will develop into a comprehensive national resource delivering STEM accessibility information to staff in a variety of roles, and disabled learners.
This work is supported by the Institute of Physics and the University of Bath. For further information please e-mail E.H.Cliffe@bath.ac.uk.
