Equality, Diversity & Inclusion


Widening Access to Higher Education with Lecture Recordings

Book your place here 

The University of Cambridge Annual Disability Lecture series started in 2003, and this year’s lecture is the 18th in the series.

For all of the previous 17 lectures, our much loved colleague, Kirsty Wayland, led the planning and management of the events. Very sadly, Kirsty died in January this year.

In her memory, and with the blessing of her husband and her family, we have renamed the lecture the Kirsty Wayland Memorial Lecture in her honour.

This year’s lecture will be delivered by Dr Emily Nordmann.


Dr. Emily Nordmann is a teaching-focused Senior Lecturer and the Deputy Director Education for the School of Psychology and Neuroscience at the University of Glasgow.

Her research predominantly focuses on the relationship between technology and learning with a focus on lecture capture and how it can be used as an effective study tool.

In particular, she is interested in how lecture recordings can help widen access and support disabled students, students with neurodivergent conditions, caring responsibilities, commitments to paid employment, and yes, even those who have just not yet developed effective study strategies.

If you have any accessibility or BSL requirements please email: prior to the event. Thank you.
