As a researcher of education accessibility for students with disabilities, Professor Sindile Amina Ngubane wants to normalise disability in society.
She is currently a Senior Researcher at the Institute for Open Distance Learning in Unisa and focuses her research on the accessibility of education for students with various disabilities.
“The Constitution talks about accessibility and addressing the injustices of the past,” she says. “Therefore, we must open access and encourage people to come and get educated but there’s always been an issue that, when [disabled] people come into the university, they cannot access lecture halls and they cannot access their online platforms.”
