Jack Smith, a BA Education student graduate, has been working with The Bridge to inform a Knowledge Exchange Toolbox for students and staff as part of the Engaging Students in Knowledge Exchange project.
Katie Stote, project officer, created a video interview with Jack to contribute to the ‘Becoming an ally and promoting diversity’ pathway on the Universities’ My Career website. This pathway helps to develop an understanding of diversity and work towards becoming an ally both in and out of the workplace. Jack’s interviews formed part of two case study videos highlighting the power of accessibility and inclusion.
Jack, a neurodiverse student with aspergers’, wanted to use his dissertation as a platform to highlight his experience of higher education. Jack produced a first-class dissertation project titled:
“Neurotypical or Stereotypical? Bridging the Gap Between University Students Knowledge and Attitudes Surrounding Autism and Autism Awareness in Higher Education.”
