Since 1992, December 3rd was declared by the United Nations as the International Day for Persons with Disabilities (IDPD) to “promote an understanding of disability issues and mobilize support for the dignity, rights and well-being of persons with disabilities.”
The Centre for Excellence in Foundational Learning, in partnership with Handi Enterprises Ltd., would like to engage Bow Valley College faculty, staff, and community in an interesting discussion about barriers and priorities relating to accessing education as a person with disabilities. We will also be exploring this year’s IDPD theme relating to technology by supplying different types of assistive technologies for participants to experience, explore, and discuss.
Come to rooms S2009, S2010, and S2011 from 12:30-3:30pm on December 3, 2014 to share in a lively discussion, a bite to eat, and some interactive learning in honour of this internationally acknowledged day!
Please note interpreters will be available at the event and the joint classrooms are wheelchair accessible. If any additional accommodations are required, please contact Candace Witkowskyj.
