VDD Studio members (volunteers) are expected to work through the VDD in-house Training program comprising five modules:
1. Disability, Society, and the Built Environment,
2. Universal Design,
3. A Rights-informed approach to Construction Detailing – focusing on co-design and co-production and underpinned by human rights-based principles,
4. Research Strategies and Methods, and
5. Reforming Built Environment Accessibility Praxis – embracing the social model of disability, complexity theory, transdisciplinarity, and (disability) human rights-based approaches.
In regard to built environment accessibility, discuss three/ four ‘models of disability’ considered to be the most important.
