You are cordially invited to attend the Joint CETIS-TechDis
Accessibility SIG (Special Interest Group) and CETIS Pedagogy Forum
Meeting. The meeting will have the theme of "Accessibility and
Pedagogy" and will be held at the University of Wales Bangor on Monday
23rd May 2005 in North Wales. There is no charge for attending and
lunch will be provided.
The agenda will include:
* Dyslexia Friendly: User Friendly (An Inclusive Approach to Accessible
Learning Materials) - Pete Rainger, Key2Access Ltd. How to develop an
inclusive approach to the design, development and adaptation of
e-learning and printed learning materials.
* Building on the Standards - Lawrie Phipps, TechDis. Approaches to
e-learning and disability and how learning for disabled students is
supported through the application of e-learning standards.
* Pedagogy Before Technology - Adrian Higginbotham, BECTA. Technology is
a useful tool but it can be a barrier if it is not embedded in the
pedagogy. Examples of inclusive design will also be given.
* Pedagogy and Accessibility (title to be confirmed) - Mark Stiles,
Staffordshire University. Details to be confirmed but may cover examples
of best practice, case studies, and examples of accessibility and
