Come to the annual Ethics Lecture where Debbie Gilmore will raise the awareness of the impact of learning disabilities on education and society. Debbie Gilmore is the Executive Director of Arrowsmith Program in Ontario. Her work is concerned with the fact that students with learning difficulties needed more support in schools. Her work as a teacher, literacy adviser, assistant principal, and principal helped her understand the need to ‘unlock’ the potential of these students. She holds a Masters of Education and various Graduate Certificates in Education in a range of areas of diverse learning. She is this year’s speaker for the annual Kenneth Mark Drain Chair in Ethics lecture, which yearly celebrates a perspective on values or ethics in a way that engages with real-world situations. These events are always open to the public, and all are welcome.
