Increasing Advocacy for Information Systems Students with Disabilities through Disability Film Festivals at a Major Metropolitan University
Joseph, Anthony; Lawler, James
Information Systems Education Journal, v16 n3 p55-68 Jun 2018
College does not bestow enough engagement of computer science and information systems students with higher-functioning people with disabilities. Information systems students without disabilities do not have enough experiences in diversity with equivalently skilled students with disabilities. In this paper, the authors expand the knowledge of information systems students without disabilities through "Disability Film Festivals" depicting not the impairments but the intelligence of those with disabilities. The authors learn that features of the films are facilitating engagement and facilitating advocacy of the information systems students for the diversity of those with disabilities having inherent information systems skills. The findings of this study from 2015 will be beneficial to information systems professors and students in encouraging more receptivity to higher-functioning students with disabilities.
