In Webinar #1 of AHEAD’s Digital Accessibility series, we looked at the evolution of digital publishing and it’s potential to revolutionise the reading experience for our learners. This follow-on webinar will ask the question – what does modern digital reading actually look like in practice and how does it support a learner’s ability to read, navigate and comprehend their course materials?
Richard Orme will provide an in-depth demonstration of the possibilities offered to learners when well-designed digital books meet accessible platforms and technologies.
James Northridge will look back on his experience of being a student with dyslexia at university and give insight into how digital reading was an enabling game changer for him.
