Pathways15: Is this Request Reasonable?

Lee Papworth, University of Melbourne

Our lives and the way we deliver education are becoming more complex. This makes adjustments more complex too. While disability and equity practitioners most often find ourselves advocating for reasonable adjustments with teaching staff, sometimes we need to say no. How do we determine what is reasonable?


Lee is committed to creating connections, and as much as possible resolving barriers, in order to empower staff, and the people they support. Lee is a recent graduate of a Masters of Evaluation, keen to measure the value of what we do as disability practitioners.
