In September of last year, NCBI launched its first ever online training programme, entitled ‘Fundamentals in Assistive Technology’.
The course, an initiative of NCBI’s Technology Specialist Team, was designed to provide a broad overview of assistive technologies used by people with impaired vision and ran over 12 weeks. Students learned how assistive and mainstream technologies can work together to provide access to solutions in environments including education, work and leisure.
It was primarily delivered online alongside a number of on-site contact days where students were given a chance to try out much of the technology featured in the course for themselves.
If you are interested in participating in the next Fundamentals in Assistive Technology Course set to commence in autumn 2018 please let us know. You can contact Stuart Lawler or JP Corcoran in NCBI on
