This annotated bibliography has been shaped by the recognition of a relationship between the contemporary focus of diversity and social justice in SoTL and the role of teaching and learning in the field of Disability Studies.

Annotations review the bases of these two philosophies, as they relate to teaching and learning, explore the role of post-secondary students with disabilities in this context and provide a discussion of future directions
