Building upon the groundwork laid by its predecessor, “The Policy, Legal and Institutional Framework of Inclusive Higher Education,” the eagerly anticipated second volume, “Leaving No One Behind: ASEAN Inclusive Learning Environment,” delves even deeper into the realization of inclusive frameworks within university campuses across the ASEAN region.
Within the pages of this transformative publication, the focus shifts from theoretical analysis to the tangible manifestation of inclusive policies and frameworks on the studied university campuses. Drawing from comprehensive case studies conducted in Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines, and Vietnam, this book meticulously assesses the current practices of these universities, particularly with regard to addressing the diverse needs of students with disabilities (SWDs).
Structured along three fundamental dimensions, this book pioneers a rigorous examination of the inclusivity landscape within ASEAN universities. First, three critical assessment criteria are employed: physical access needs, teaching and learning needs, and campus experiences. These criteria serve as a holistic framework to evaluate the efficacy of existing practices in fostering an inclusive learning environment.
Furthermore, the book delves into four distinct categories of disabilities, namely, learning disability, visual impairment, hearing impairment, and mobility impairment. By shining a light on the challenges faced by SWDs across these diverse disability types, the authors uncover crucial insights into the areas that demand immediate attention and improvement.
Grounded in meticulous research and empirical evidence, the book seeks to inform and empower university administrators, policymakers, and educators to enact positive change. By providing a comprehensive analysis of the current landscape and highlighting areas for growth, this book aims to drive the development of inclusive policies and guidelines tailored specifically to the unique needs of SWDs in ASEAN universities.
Prepare to embark on an enlightening journey that challenges conventional notions of education and paves the way for a truly inclusive future. With its valuable recommendations, this seminal work promises to shape the way we approach higher education, fostering an environment where all students, regardless of ability, can thrive and excel.
