Research to Practice Session

This session has been cancelled. 


Research can have surprising and unexpected outcomes. This was certainly the case when we conducted a randomized controlled trial evaluating a piece of assistive technology and its usage in our colleges testing centre. We were interested in learning more about the impact of our training protocols on assistive technology adoption. We compared a workshop condition to an appointment condition and found some unexpected and surprising results. Our workshop group engaged better with all testing accommodation usage within the testing centre compared to the appointment condition. This presentation will look at the active ingredients in the workshop group that is believed to have contributed to this interesting result and how we can apply this knowledge to our work with students.
