Being an Elbow: A Phenomenological Autoethnography of Faculty-Student Collaboration for Accommodations
Aguirre, Regina T. P.; Duncan, Chad
Journal of Teaching in Social Work, v33 n4-5 p531-551 2013
Hybrid and online courses and advances in assistive technologies make accommodating students with disabilities ever-changing, requiring innovation. This reality, coupled with students' reluctance to disclose disabilities, points toward a need for replacing accommodations directed at those with disabilities with universal design whereby they become accessible to all--virtually eliminating the need for accommodations. In this paper, a master's of social work student (Chad) and his instructor (Regina) document their collaborations to revise a social work research course to meet his request for accommodations to make options more universally accessible. These revisions are done through reflections from both Chad and Regina from a phenomenological autoethnographic perspective--depicting their lived experiences.
