Marketing Text Bulletins (newsletters) were used by the promoter and project partners to disseminate the idea of raising disability awareness. The newsletters were widely circulated in the sectors of education and social policy in Poland and Europe. They were sent to educational institutions, teacher training centres, secondary schools and academic teachers with an aim to expand their knowledge and skills related to disability in the area of education.
The first issue of the newsletter includes four chapters, three of which are thematically related to the project. The first one concerns the support offer for disabled students at the Jagiellonian University, the second one concerns international projects, which primarily applies to the DARE project, the third one focuses on the conference concluding the project in 2009 and the last chapter includes a keynote speech by Professor Willi Aastrup, an honorary speaker at the conference on disability awareness in the context of university training.
The second issue of the newsletter has a dual structure: the first part is devoted to modern technologies supporting the education of blind and partially sighted persons. The second part includes articles focusing on supporting the teaching process of persons with hearing disability. Both parts include useful teaching guidelines for academic teachers that are derived from the trainer’s manual for academic teachers developed as part of the DARE project. The newsletter repeatedly mentions training for academic teachers organised by the project.
The third issue of the bulletin focuses on mental health problems among the academic community. The publication includes multi-dimensional articles on the effective support for students who are mentally ill, provided not only by Polish universities but also those in the UK and the USA. Moreover, this issue also offers an opportunity to find out about the etymology of the word “inclusion”, which is an important term in the context of inclusive education. There are also teaching guidelines for academic teachers.
The fourth issue of the bulletin includes interviews with interesting people concerning their professional development, approach to business in the context of disability and corporate social responsibility. The interviewees are non-disabled and disabled persons working in public institutions and running their own businesses, scientists and entrepreneurs, i.e. successful individuals who have managed to enter and operate on the open labour market. What they have in common is passion to work for better society. The publication appeared under the patronage of the Polish Ombudsman.
