The NSERC CREATE Research and Education in Accessibility, Design, and Innovation (READi) program provides accessibility training and skills to students.
READi is an integrated solutions-oriented training program employing applied and experiential learning. Through active collaborations with businesses, non-government organizations, accessibility experts, and people with disabilities, students from Carleton University, University of Ottawa, and Queen’s University engage in an interdisciplinary environment that includes a diverse number of end-users in co-designing. Students exiting the program will be better prepared for employment in a growing number of markets defined by accessibility requirements; moreover, students and collaborators engage in other participatory research and development activities that focus on real-world accessibility issues.
We are looking for collaborators interested in engaging with our students in the accessibility training program, as well as potentially engaging in research projects and internships.
