The 2017 World Usability Day New England event is coming to beautiful Connecticut. Join us on November 9th for a day of educational presentations at the University of Connecticut Student Union building. We are predicting about 300 attendees and 15-20 speakers and vendors with sessions regarding Accessible documents, Website Design and Compliance, User Experience, Universal Design, and the latest Assistive Technology for education and employment, as well as accessible design in the home and community. Experts from these fields will be sharing their expertise through demonstrations and informative workshop sessions!
Usability, accessibility and assistive technology allow persons of all abilities to engage in learning, employment and enjoying life to the fullest. The #WUDNE17 event aims to bring together some of the brightest minds in these three fields, for a day of learning, professional development and networking. Please remember to use the #WUDNE17 hashtag on social media.
This event is sponsored by UConn Center for Students with Disabilities, csd.uconn.edu, celebrating 50 years of service to students! Also sponsored by Assistive Technology for Education, ATforED.com, and Forward View Consulting, forwardviewconsulting.com.
The event will be held on November 9th, 2017 from 8 AM to 4 PM on the campus of the University of Connecticut. Click here to review accessibility information for the facility.
