This weekend Access2books is attending the Visual Impairment Residential Study Weekend Programme at the University of Birmingham.That was followed by a welcome and introduction by Mike McLinden. After that, it was down to some hard work with an Introduction to Curriculum Access which was chaired by Mike McLinden.
The panel members were Gwyneth McCommack [Positive Eye], pictured below, and Steve McCall.
After lunch, from about 13:30 to 1530hrs was the mobility and Orientation Session facilitated by Angie Bisson, Linda Bain and Suzy McDonald. From about 16:00hrs, the Mobility and Orientation Session continues after about a 30 minute break.
The programme continues throughout the weekend, so, watch out for a more detailed blog with loads of insights after the weekend and a lot more colourful pictures.
At the moment, we are literally shooting and writing from the hip, if such a thing exists. So, apologies for the lack of meat on the bone of this piece.
Have a great weekend and enjoy the summer. We definitely will be soaking up this stimulating environment.
