New year, new update!
Since my last post, I completed my master’s program and am now the proud holder of an MEd in Curriculum and Instruction with a concentration in assistive technology from George Mason University!
I chose Mason because, in addition to boasting the second oldest AT program in the nation and the higher-ed leading Assistive Technology Initiative, they offered me the opportunity to learn online, allowing me to earn my degree while continuing my work at UA. When I started the program, I hoped to learn things I could apply to my work in libraries while preparing to move into a role more focused on accessibility and/or assistive technology when the right opportunity came along—and came along it did!
I am thrilled to share that I have joined The University of Alabama’s Office of Information Technology Emerging Technology and Accessibility team, helping to ensure that technology users, including those with disabilities, have a functional and accessible technology experience with the university’s web presence and instructional and emerging technologies. I am delighted to be collaborating with faculty and other instructors in the development of accessible instructional materials and universally designed curricula and working with friends and colleagues to make UA a more inclusive and accessible place.
Due to the change in the nature of my work, I’ve removed the Publications and Presentations pages from this site; however, presentation files and related resources are still available via individual posts. For more regular updates, you can follow me on Twitter.
