In October, the IDRC hosted DEEP 2015: Designing Enabling Economies and Policies. Attendees from around the world discussed issues around "big data" and how it impacts our lives. Next year’s DEEP will be on October 13th and 14th, 2016 – save the date!
In November, the IDRC participated in a special Strand on Accessibility and OER at the 12th Annual Open Education Conference in Vancouver, BC, Nov. 18-20, 2015. IDRC Director Jutta Treviranus was part of a panel on Accessibility and OER, and many of the IDRC team were available at a dedicated area where attendes can collaborate with accessibility gurus and make code, designs, and content more inclusive. Attendees were able to “bring their own URL” and interact with a range of assistive devices to learn more about OER, inclusive design, and accessibility.
In December, IDRC Director Jutta Treviranus spoke at the IIDEXCanada National Summit on Accessibility, held in Toronto, ON on Dec.2-3, 2015.
