This course is a survey of assistive technologies for people with low vision and blindness. Guest lectures from leaders in the field and people with lived experience help students learn about low-vision and blindness accessibility across several domains. In the second half of the class, students partner with each other and clients/community members to develop their own projects (2016 and 2018) .
NYU ITP/IDM students worked to research, design, and develop a system of client centered data management, musical interfaces and interactive learning tools for the Beat Rocker beatboxing program at the Lavelle School for the Blind. Students in the class gained practical experience in user research/testing, human-centered design, and the prototyping process (2016).
This multidisciplinary New York University course brings together students from Interactive Telecommunications, Occupational Therapy, and Integrated Digital Media Programs to work together to learn about and develop assistive technology, as well as cultivate a better understanding of the people being served. Partnering with community organizations, students work in teams and consult with clients to develop a prototype product (2015-2017).
In this workshop, I taught designers and developers at Huge Design the basics of digital accessibility and accessible design best practices (2017).
