New and under-used strategies for accessible graphics in higher education
ADCET and the Australian Tertiary Education Network on Disability (ATEND) are pleased to bring you this webinar - it will be live captioned and there is no cost to attend.
As part of a two year project, Leona Holloway and her project team worked closely with vision impaired students in higher education, disability advisors, academics and accessible formats producers. They found evidence that vision impaired students are missing out on important information graphics and that this is affecting their education experience and their choice of study and career paths. Through a series of pilot studies, they explored a wide range of strategies to improve this situation, with a strong focus on practical implementation. Further information about this webinar
