Journal of Postsecondary Education and Disability, v25 n4 p297-308 Win 2012
The purpose of the study was to identify the perceptions and needs of students with disabilities with respect to Information Technology (IT) training. Results emerged from a survey of 324 college students with disabilities from 17 universities in South Korea. Survey questions were divided into two sections: (a) perceptions about the relevance and usefulness of, and willingness to participate in training and (b) needs about training contents, method, and accommodations. The majority of students with disabilities perceived that IT skills were relevant to their future career and that it is useful for their career preparation. In addition, most of the students needed training in IT career skills and preferred practical experiences as training methods. Implications and recommendations for future research based on the results are suggested. (Contains 4 tables.)
