The Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Education would like to congratulate recent MA Special Educational Needs and Inclusion Graduate, Anastasia Sofia Semaan, following her commendation at the prestigious Green Gown Awards, in the Student Sustainability Champion category.
Anastasia’s project took the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and created an accessible format using Widgit Symbols, which are predominantly pictorial symbols used to support students with additional needs, including those with speech, language and communication difficulties.
“This award is a wonderful recognition of the innovative and ambitious work undertaken by Anastasia to make the SDGs more inclusive and accessible. The fact that one of our students felt empowered to produce this work of potentially global impact is a source of great pride for us as a values-driven and socially committed University.”Principal and Vice-Chancellor, Professor Rama Thirunamachandran
