DEAL: Digital Education and Accessible Learning – seeking undergraduate study participants

Posted in News

Undergraduate study participants sought

“The University of Reading’s Institute of Education and Department of Computer Science, together with partners, GOALS4LIFE, Deafax and AACT, are conducting a study, funded by the Leverhulme Trust, called DEAL: Digital Education and Accessible Learning. Its aim is to investigate the accessibility of online learning materials for university undergraduate students who are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH); and for those who have dyslexia or speak English as a second or additional language. In the midst of this difficult COVID-19 situation, we are currently seeking to recruit undergraduate study participants from these three groups. “
