Workshop Program

1:00 – Registration

1:30-3:00 – Workshop 1: Getting Results: The Skills Used by Blind and Vision Impaired Students to Reach Their Potential:

Many blind and vision impaired students achieve outstanding results, even though many of the techniques promoted for study and exam preparation are visually based. Find out how successful students study, complete assignments, prepare for and produce their best work in exams. Hear how they manage their work at university and their lives outside it. Contribute your own hacks for getting the best marks for your work and meet and learn from others who know what it’s like to be young, blind and studying.

3:00-3:30 – Afternoon tea

3:30-5:00 – Concurrent Workshops:

Workshop 2A: Building self-confidence and communication skills

Self-confidence and communication skills can make all the difference to people who are blind or vision impaired at school and in the workplace. People who are blind or vision impaired at various stages of their education and career journeys will share personal stories and answer your questions about how they have developed these skills to help them achieve success in education, employment and daily life.

Workshop 2B: A hands-on introduction to audio editing

A small group of up to ten participants will learn the basics of audio editing through this hands-on tutorial. The workshop will enable them to produce simple podcasts and audio projects.
