Detailed Description

Published by Inspired By Learning, The Inclusivity Gap addresses issues of inclusive learning in Higher Education. Edited by Karisa Křčmář, Senior Tutor for Students with Specific Learning Differences and Manager of the Study Support Service at the University of Loughborough, UK, the book has contributions by 39 people from over 30 institutions. A range of chapters address issues regarding inclusion in the Higher Education sector. The include questions about disability, non-traditional students, retention and physical spaces. Karisa writes about the ‘elephants in the room’ - issues relating to recruitment, inclusion and difficulties nobody appears to want to discuss - and the book contains chapters from renowned academics and writers offering insight into aspects of the student experience. This book is a comprehensive contribution to a host of issues surrounding the inclusivity debate with the aim of beginning to close what the editor terms ‘the inclusivity gap’. ‘This is an outstanding and timely collection of essays, neatly organised and structured to support all of those involved in the student journey, from recruitment through to graduation. Dr. John Cater, Vice-Chancellor, Edge Hill University, UK. 'Its mix of chapters focusing on experience, theory and practice and the sheer range of topics covered – from lecture capture to learning spaces, from policy implementation to practice development, from student support to student voice – mean that there is something for everyone. Bringing together students, academics, professional staff and practitioners, this volume is truly diverse and, I am sure, will become a “must read”..’ Dr Pauline Hanesworth, Senior Adviser, Advance HE. ‘This is a timely and valuable book about a really important issue in Higher Education. The coverage is excellent of many groups and issues that up to now, have not received the support and attention merited.’ Professor Colin Bryson, Newcastle University UK, Chair of RAISE.
