Accessibility in Practice
June 13 @ 13:00 - 15:00
Inklusio, (a leading web accessibility consultancy in DK) will visit ITU to teach Tipsters how to use screen-readers. Stein Erik Stokjerra and Mai Hartmann will facilitate the workshop.
The team at Inklusio have conducted workshops across Denmark to make web accessibility compliance a reality in the Danish context e.g., at Denmarks Radio and various municipalities. They also monitor web accessibility compliance of public sector websites for the Agency for Digitisation.
We will put screen readers into practice. After the course you should be able to have a basic understanding of screen readers and web accessibility and be more confident in making your research accessible.
We have four regular events
- The TiP Salon runs weekly during the semester. We convene around constructive engagement with new publications, visitors to the group and work in progress. The meeting is open, and runs at 12:00-13:00 on Wednesdays. Please contact Lara Reime to sign up to the email list.
- Shut up and Write runs weekly during the semester. Based on the model promoted by Inger Mewburn, we commit to writing projects on the whiteboard and write in shorter sessions with breaks. For more, see here.
- The TiP Invited Speaker Series has been running since 2018, and each year 3-4 invited speakers present their work in a public forum. All welcome.
- The TiP Writing Workshop takes place twice a semester, where contributions from all members of TiP are welcome. The purpose of the workshop is to give and receive feedback on ‘in progress’ work. Practically the workshop entails reading all participants’ submission, being a ‘caring opponent’ on one particular text, and participating in constructive debate about the texts.
When PhD students are at the right stage of their studies, they resurrect the longstanding institution of the STS Reading Group. Previous seasons of the Reading Group can be found here (2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2017).
