Information Systems Education Journal, v13 n4 p51-63 Jul 2015

College curricula of engineering and information systems do not afford frequent engagement with individuals with disabilities. The authors of this research study analyzed the benefits of disability films for a community film festival of largely engineering and information systems students and individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities. The authors learned that disability film media enables discernable engagement and advocacy of the students for the rights of individuals with disabilities. The authors also learned that the disability film media facilitates engagement and self-advocacy of the individuals for themselves. This study will be beneficial to instructors in engineering and information systems, and instructors in liberal arts, evaluating film media as an exciting method for involving students with individuals with disabilities on multidisciplinary projects of public service.
