#jiscel10 -JISC Online Conference Have a Go – Equality, Inclusion and eLearning

October 27, 2010

Way back when dinosaurs roamed the earth and I was pleased to have access to a PC that ran at 33MHz,  I was trained in the ways of e-learning by two fine fellows who were working on the ILT Champions Programme. One was Geoff Minshull, who is running the conference, the other was Alistair McNaught.

About twenty of us worked through a vast range of resources to support e-learning over two days at Eastleigh College.

I’m still in touch with a great number of those people, and Alistair holds a place of honour in my pantheon of ILT heroes.

For a number of years now he’s been working away at TECHDIS the JISC advance service that advises on accessibility.

In the Online Conference “Have a Go” area, Alistair has posted a link to a video introducing the Techdis Online Accessibility Self Evaluation Service (OASES).

The OASES resources are a  very useful tool, making accessibility relevant to the roles of those involved in education.

The Equality act came into force very recently, and provides an opportunity for reflection on current  practice. This resource could support a most timely intervention.

The Conference runs from the 23rd – 26th November 2010, BUT the pre-conference activity and reading week opens on 16th November 2010 and offers a chance to become familiar with the conference environment and try out innovative JISC projects in the ‘have-a-go’ area. 

See you there!
