Do you enjoy hearing about the latest thought-provoking research? The Scholars’ Hub @ Home speaker series features discussions on a broad range of topics, with engaging lectures from some of York’s best minds.
The Scholars’ Hub events are done in partnership with Vaughan Public Libraries, Markham Public Library and Aurora Public Library, and are presented by York Alumni Engagement. Students, alumni and all members of the community are welcome to attend. All sessions take place at 12 p.m.
The series continues Nov. 18 with “Addressing rights to accommodation in education placements.”
This event will be presented by Katie MacEntee, research associate, Faculty of Health, York University; Roxanne Mykitiuk, professor at Osgoode Hall Law School, York University; Brooke Magel, master’s student, School of Health Policy and Management, York University; and Iris Epstein, assistant professor, School of Nursing, Faculty of Health, York University
In this presentation, experts will discuss the ACTon study, which adapted a participatory video method for working online with students with disabilities and their instructors to explore issues of accessibility in experimental learning settings. The scholars will describe the research approach and discuss the challenges and successes of working virtually to collect and analyze visual data while still maintaining the study’s commitment to inclusive, participatory and community-based research principles.
