On Thursday 20 2016, we will have the honor of presenting Dr. Joshua Miele to the GC community. Dr. Miele is the Associate Director of Technology Research and Development, at the Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center on Low Vision and Blindness, and has spearheaded multiple apps, platforms, and resources that promote digital accessibility–including the Blind Arduino Project, overTHERE, YouDescribe, and many more. In his talk, he will discuss the philosophy that informs his approach to maker culture, and consider the essential role of digital accessibility in this formulation.
The event is free and open to the public. RSVP to attend here.
If you require accessibility accommodation, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call Lisa Rhody at (212) 817 8490.
We are delighted to share this event with you and look forward to seeing you there!
