It is my great honour and privilege to update you that the RMIT Vietnam Centre Of Digital Excellence (CODE) have invited me to present a digital access workshop at InSITE 2017: Informing Science + IT Education Conferences: Vietnam.
The conference runs from 31 July to 5 August and will feature topics related to ICT and education such as:
- The art and science of informing clients
- Misinforming / Misinformation and Bias in informing systems
- Teaching and mentoring of doctoral students
- Information Technology for Education
- Lifelong Learning
- eSkills and Civil Society
- Preparing Doctoral Students
- Post Secondary Education
My workshop will be on Wednesday 2 August titled ‘Experiencing the Web in Different Ways’. The session is described as follows:
People with disabilities experience online content in a variety of different ways. Dr Scott Hollier will take you through some of the technologies that are used for online engagement across a range of different devices including laptops, smartphones, tablets and a digital assistant. How do these technologies help, and how will it change in the future? Find out in this practical hands-on workshop.
In addition, I’ll be spending time with the staff and students of RMIT Vietnam to provide digital accessibility advice and support, chatting about all things accessibility and my life experience as discussed in my book ‘Outrunning the Night’.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the RMIT Vietnam CODE for the invitation and sponsorship to provide the workshop and I’m very much looking forward to meeting everyone there.
