“We Can Never Go Back”: Exploring the (dis)advantages of distance learning modes for disabled students is a discussion paper from the Link Network.

This discussion paper explores what lessons can be learned from the COVID-19 pandemic about distance learning, specifically for students with disabilities in higher education institutions. It is based on both the experiences and insights of LINK partner organisations of engaging with national stakeholders, students and staff throughout COVID-19 to date, and on more concrete evidence which emerged from the partner countries during the period.

The LINK Network is a european learning network made up of 7 organisations and educational institutions with national remits on issues related to disability and inclusive education, including transition from secondary level, further and higher education.

The current LINK partners are: AHEAD (Ireland), DŠIS (Slovenia), ECIO (The Netherlands), NADP (United Kingdom), Directorate for Higher Education and Skills (Norway), Stockholm University (Sweden), SIHO (Belgium). More info on the Link Network here.
