Academic Training Partners

The purpose of the academic training partners was to include and enhance wheelchair content in educational programs while using globally available resources as appropriate.  The integration of wheelchair content in pilot sites was based on the interest and readiness to integrate new content, methodology and/or ISWP tests. The instructors from these institutions held joint meetings monthly since August 2016 with the purpose to develop the ‘Wheelchair Education Integration Toolkit ’.

ISWP facilitated meeting in order to share experiences, support programs by providing tests and materials and facilitating content sharing.

Participating pilot sites shared presentations, online modules, course syllabi, case study activities, lab activities, assessments and more resources to support other educators in the development of their course.
