The Education and Work Research Theme at Western Sydney University welcomes you to Research Week at Western. For further events during this week, please visit the website at www.westernsydney.edu.au/researchweek

This online symposium brings together Western Sydney University researchers and leading government departments and community organisations to showcase research partnerships which seek to promote high quality education and work for people with disability. Importantly, processes of co-design, partnership and a strengths-based approach underpin these research stories.

Topics featured include:

- Supporting teachers to enhance inclusive practice in preschool

- Understanding the transition experience from school to post school options, including employment

- Advocating for collaboration in higher education to support student success

The online symposium culminates with a collaborative discussion where participants will be grouped by their area of interest to formulate future research priorities and projects.

The Zoom link and a "Preparing for the Event" document will be sent to you prior to the event.
