There’s an urgent need for an opportunity mindset to inform educational design and create a truly accessible future for all, says Minnie Baragwanath MNZM – disability advocate and possibility leadership consultant.

At the latest Learner Success Community of Practice webinar on 7 June 2024, Minnie shared her personal and professional experiences, knowledge and thinking on accessibility and tertiary education.

We are pleased to share a recording of her presentation, Leading a Future of Possibility:

Learner Success Community of Practice webinar – Minnie Baragwanath

Minnie discusses the importance of creating spaces for learners with accessibility needs, to improve educational and career outcomes. She zeros in on the reality of a system which is “…not benign, but deeply inaccessible” and discusses the shift away from a deficit mindset to an opportunity mindset, including changing behaviours and attitudes, at all levels of an organisation.
