Reflections on EdTech 2022

Brickfield Education Labs presented two sessions at the EdTech 2022 conference, hosted last week in University College Cork on the 26th and 27th of May. We shared our tips on making courses for the neurodivergent student and we demonstrated our Moodle Accessibility Toolkit to attendees showing them the latest features including our latest wizards and the enhanced alternate format conversions from the Book resource.

About Edtech

Organised by the Irish Learning Technology Association – a community of professionals committed to the development and exchange of knowledge and the promotion of best practice in technology-enhanced learning, the conference had attendees from across Ireland – schools, colleges and universities.

Our Presence

Gavin Henrick and Karen Holland, Co-Founders of Brickfield Education Labs met old friends and engaged with the educational community at this year’s EdTech conference. Sharing how institutions, staff and students can benefit from the Moodle Accessibility Toolkit we explained how research with our clients contributes to our product roadmap. We were delighted to attend this year’s event in person.

Our Sessions

Karen and Gavin co-presented two sessions at the EdTech 202; Designing courses for neurodivergent students and a Brickfield Accessibility Toolkit deep dive presentation which was an introduction to the Moodle Accessibility Toolkit.

Designing courses for neurodivergent students

Karen and Gavin presented ‘Designing courses for neurodivergent students’ on Thursday the 26th May. This was a 15-minute presentation where they shared the main guidelines to keep in mind when designing and creating courses in Moodle to benefit everyone, but especially neurodivergent students.

This was a lively session with great questions at the end, some attendees asked for the list of resources from our slides to be shared, so we have included them here below this blog post!

Brickfield Accessibility Toolkit deep dive presentation

Gavin Henrick presented an in-depth demo of the Brickfield Accessibility Toolkit where he explained its many features and benefits to both institutions and for their end-users, learners. The participants were able to view how the toolkit helped to Find, Fix and Future-proof moodle courses.

During these events, we are especially happy to hear users of the Accessibility Toolkit talk about their experiences with it. Dr Mark Glynn, Head of Teaching Enhancement at Dublin City University, shared a presentation “Reflections on using Accessibility Toolkit in Moodle” that provided first hand experiences from one of their lecturers use of the Toolkit to improve their course content.

Thats a wrap

Thank you to everyone who attended our sessions, interacted and asked questions. Congratulations to ILTA for hosting EdTech 2022, and thank you for the opportunity to present at it.
