Best Practices in Online Education for the Visually Impaired
Kirby Lindgren is the Director of Professional Outreach at the Hadley Institute for the Blind and Visually Impaired.
Founded in 1920, Hadley’s mission is to create personalized learning opportunities that empower adults with vision loss or blindness to thrive – at home, at work, and in their communities. In today’s presentation, Kirby will discuss data on the evolving technology environment, review research Hadley has done over the past two years, outline best practices in online education, and give a brief demo of Hadley’s newly developed website with creative accessibility features and exciting new content – including new innovative, interactive Braille workshops. A 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, Hadley relies on contributions from individuals, foundations, and corporations to fund programs which are free to their clients.
