Explore disability and reflect on what it means to have a good life
20% of the global population has a disability, which means most of us will have an experience of disability in our lives, whether personally, through family and friends, or in our workplaces and communities.
In this course, you’ll reflect on how disability is part of who we are as human beings. You’ll engage with stories from the diverse lives of people with disabilities, explore contemporary debates, and reflect on the many ways disability is understood and experienced. Above all, you’ll consider what it means to have a good life – and how a good life might be enabled for everyone.
