Abstract

Inspired by the famous slogan ‘nothing about us without us’, this paper draws upon the experience of the author to explore the issue of how to navigate a disability studies curriculum in the contemporary University. Experience of university both as a student and as a lecturer has informed the writing of this article. The article begins by exploring the use of autoethnographic/ auto/biographical accounts, before exploring some of the important elements of planning and assessing disability-focused courses in higher education in the UK and concludes by offering some suggestions as to the value of theoretically generated personal observations in higher education provision.
