Are you a disabled student affected by a Department or Faculty’s decision to stop providing lecture recordings?

Some Faculties and Departments have made the decision to stop recording lectures, which may be having an impact on some disabled students’ ability to access lectures.

If you are concerned that all or some reasonable adjustments have not been put in place, you should raise this with your Tutor/ Graduate Tutor or the Department or Service responsible for the adjustment.

Once made aware, the member of staff notified will be responsible for ensuring all adjustments are put in place.

If the reasonable adjustments are still not put in place, you can raise a complaint through the Student Complaint Procedure. You have 28 days from the event to raise a complaint.

The General Board’s Education Committee (GBEC) recently published a statement, Expectation to record lectures, recommending lecture recordings are made available to students as standard across the institution.

The GBEC have also released an Addendum to the Expectation recommending lecture recordings are provided to disabled students who would experience a disadvantage if they did not have access to lecture recordings.

The University’s Code of Practice: Access and Inclusion for Disabled Students highlights the University’s duty to make reasonable adjustments for disabled students.

If you have questions about your reasonable adjustments or are finding your reasonable adjustments are insufficient, you can reach out to the Accessibility and Disability Resource Centre or the Disability Liaison Officer in your College or Department for further information.

Our team of Advisors at the Student Advice Service can also provide support through these procedures and help you explore your options: www.cambridgesu.co.uk/advice/student-advice-service/contact/
