Through AccessAbility Services, the Directorate of Learning, Teaching and Student Engagement assists teaching staff to provide the best teaching and learning experiences for JCU's diverse student population.
AccessAbility Services is a confidential support service for students who identify with temporary or permanent injury, disability, illness or health condition. Students who register with AccessAbility Services may nominate a JCU staff member(s) who demonstrates exceptional commitment to helping students achieve positive learning experiences and campus experiences in general.
The Inclusive Practice Awards have been part of AccessAbility Services since 2000 and are presented annually. The Awards recognise the efforts made by staff to be flexible, consultative, proactive, and/or innovative in minimising the challenges for students studying with a temporary or permanent disability, injury, illness or health condition.
