Foundations in Assistive Technology Course 2024
A 5 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) course accredited by Technological University Dublin and delivered via 11 webinars.
Enable Ireland's Certified Foundations in Assistive Technology is a 5 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) course accredited by Technological University Dublin, through the College of Engineering and Built Environment. In total, the time commitment is 100 hours: 11 x 2.5 hr webinars (27.5 hrs) PLUS 72.5 hrs e-learning which includes completion of your course project. You will get the chance to hear from, and interact with, national and international AT experts, AT users and professionals working in the field. We will also use Teams to support group work, problem solving and case studies throughout the course.
Assistive Technology is a broad and fast-evolving area and this Foundations course is designed to equip professionals, AT users, families and caregivers with up to date and relevant information that will serve as a strong basis for supporting all who are already using, or could benefit from using Assistive Technology. Our goal is to support your learning throughout the process. Past participants have highlighted the benefit of group discussion, hands on opportunities with a range of Assistive Technologies (you will have full membership of our internal AT Loan Library for the duration of the course), and engagement with expert AT users.
We offer all of these resources to you as part of this course, and we welcome your feedback as you advance through the course. Please feel free to contact us directly if you have any particular queries or concerns about your participation or about navigating through the course itself.
