ATE Events — January 2022


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.
