  • WEBINAR | Does Lecture Capture and Recording Really Support learning?

    Date: Tuesday 14th March, 12:00 - 1:00 pm

    Session overview:

    Throughout the webinar, Lucy will refer to research that shows lecture recording must be integrated into effective study practises if it’s to properly support students with disabilities.

    Session overview:

    Making the transition from high school to college can be stressful, challenging, even overwhelming. And research shows that students with learning disabilities have a harder time than most.

    Over half of students with disabilities are identified as “at risk of failure” and/or dropping out of college, according to the National Council on Disabilities (NCD). Worse, only 34% of 4-year students with disabilities graduate from their program (Newman et al., 2011).
