University Faculty Attitudes toward Disability and Inclusive Instruction: Comparing Two Institutions
Lombardi, Allison; Murray, Christopher; Dallas, Bryan
Journal of Postsecondary Education and Disability, v26 n3 p221-232 Fall 2013
It is increasingly important for postsecondary disability services personnel to provide targeted disability-related training to faculty rather than support college students with disabilities on a case-by-case basis. In this study, we examined faculty attitudes toward disability-related topics and inclusive teaching practices at two public four-year institutions using the Inclusive Teaching Strategies Inventory (ITSI). Findings suggest that malleable factors such as training opportunities positively affect faculty attitudes toward disability and inclusive instruction based on the tenets of Universal Design. Implications for practice specifically related to disability services personnel and faculty outreach strategies are discussed.
