EvaluATE webchats are an opportunity for small groups of ATE evaluation community members to come together to share and learn from each other in real-time. Anyone interested in evaluation is welcome to attend. Participants are encouraged to turn on their webcams and join in the conversation, offering a great opportunity to network.

This webinar is the first of two sessions highlighting accessible technology on smartphones and tablets for persons with disabilities. In this session speakers will highlight mobile apps used by persons who are blind or have low vision. The session will include apps used for way finding, social media and more. The session will also explore built-in accessibility features of iOS and Android operating platforms. There will be time following the presentation for questions.

Using qualitative data in an evaluation can lead to a deeper understanding of why and how a project works. Quotations and stories can share participants’ lived experiences in their own voices. Still, qualitative information can be difficult to integrate effectively into an evaluation report. In this webinar, presenters will share strategies for increasing the trustworthiness and transparency of qualitative data, as well as data visualization and design suggestions for communicating qualitative data to multiple stakeholder groups.

Presenters: Lyssa Wilson Becho, Emma Binder

The three-day event will focus on the sustainability challenges and the innovative solutions to pursue. Presenters will highlight legislative and international efforts, innovations in the field of energy efficiency and Building Automation Systems, and strategies and opportunities for educators and industry. 

Organizers encourage college educators and students in building science and energy management programs; teachers of high school physics, technical, and engineering courses; and building engineers, technicians, and facilities managers to attend.

The Western Academy Support and Training Center winter conference is for information communication technology educators and their industry partners. Cost is $50 per attendee. This includes presentations, chat room discussions, raffles & on-demand access will be available until January 14, 2022.

This webinar is hosted by the Canadian Association of Professional Academic Librarians's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) Community of Practice. In this presentation, Dr Daniella Levy-Pinto will talk about the experiences of being provided inaccessible journal articles, eBooks, and other scholarly materials. She will comment on the consequences badly produced reading material has for the blind community and the scholarly community more broadly. Daniella will then describe the work of the National Network for Equitable Library Service (NNELS). The work of NNELS to advance the born-accessible paradigm has been recognized by the Accessible Books Consortium, through the International Excellence Award on Accessible Publishing  in the initiatives category.  Daniella will highlight what librarians in all capacities can do to remove barriers to reading.
