How the Pandemic has Leveraged Accessibility with Ros Walker
The session will be in hybrid mode (both physical and virtual attendance).
In-person session is recomended and will be held on The Active Learning Space within The Hub and Tea&Coffee will be provided.
Ros joined Student Services at the University of St Andrews in October 2021 as Digital Accessibility Adviser. Before that, she worked as a Learning Technologist at the University of Stirling.
From a background in languages and many years as a schools e-learning adviser, Ros moved into Assistive Technologies and accessibility at the University of Huddersfield in 2016. She was excited to see how technology is developing to support students in their academic studies and how an inclusive learning environment can be created, developing independence and resilience in learners. The Public Bodies Accessibility Regulations (2018) has further promoted inclusive practice, and Ros supported the development of this approach at the University of Stirling (2018-2021). Her case studies for Senior Fellowship (SFHEA) were based on digital accessibility and inclusion.
