Teaching and Learning Conference 2019: Unseen disabilities in undergraduates: An invisible opportunity for collaborative group learning?

Students without disabilities and those with unseen disabilities (UD) participated in a 5 day group work employability initiative aimed at "developing problem solvers innovators and leaders of the future". Difficulties encountered in the group work focused on the perception of students with unseen disabilities by their non-disabled peers. These students were often selected for group work not on the basis of their strengths as group contributors but on the basis of perceived weaknesses for the group. The consequence of this was a loss to the group of the possible individual contributions which could be made by these group members.
