    Module1a_Unit2_2.3 ACT MOOC W1 v5 Legislation

    Welcome to the last video of the introductory unit of our MOOC, in which we will briefly focus on the most important international documents regulating accessibility for people with disabilities. As you no doubt know, legislation is a very complex and extensive field, and regulations exist on the global, European, national and local level. Moreover, regulations on the national and local level sometimes differ from one country or region to the next. In other words, it is impossible to cover this topic in a detailed and comprehensive way in this short introduction. Therefore we will focus on two important documents that have a very broad reach, namely the United Nations…

    What is Universal Design for Learning (UDL)?

    Imagine you went into a big clothes store and all that was on sale was 1 type of outfit, in 1 size, with no thought given to different individual body shapes or personalities. That would be crazy right? Expecting everyone to be able to fit into the same size and express themselves in the same colour and style? Yet in many cases that’s exactly what is happening in our education system. When it comes to learning, variability is the rule not the exception and our college campuses are now grappling with the demands of an increasingly diverse cohort of learners with increasing numbers of international students, students from different cultural…

    Hacking Universal Analytics – Tying Caffeine to Productivity

    Universal Analytics is a game changer, it takes Google Analytics from a tool that measures interactions with websites and mobile apps to a tool that can measure just about anything. It moves from being a tool that measures interactions on a per device or per browser basis. To a tool that can track the same user as they access a site on their work PC, their mobile, their home PC or in our case, as they identify themselves using an RFID key when they make a coffee. But it can do much more. Over the last few months, the analytics team here at Loves Data have been tracking everything we…

    Confederation Park Art

    We are working on an art project for Confederation Park. And we are representing voices that were not heard in the creation of Canada. I think as a young person it can be challenging to speak out sometimes. Just with everything, with peer pressure, and being so young, people will judge you. But this is a great opportunity to actually do something and have support in it while doing it.

    Video Abstract | Reducing cardiovascular risk in hypertension with community-based intervention

    We, at the Population Health Research Institute in Canada, along with our colleagues in Colombia, Malaysia and the United Kingdom, have been working to reduce cardiovascular risk as part of the HOPE 4 study. Hypertension is the leading cause of cardiovascular disease worldwide. We know that lowering blood pressure reduces stroke and ischemic heart disease. Furthermore, statins reduce cardiovascular disease in those with hypertension. Unfortunately the detection, treatment and control of hypertension has been low for decades. We urgently need simple and effective strategies to help tackle this greatest contributor to the global burden of disease. Therefore, we conducted two systematic reviews and two health system appraisals in Colombia and…

    Early Intervention for Deaf Children

    A lot of parents have understandable anxieties when they realize their child is deaf. They’re not sure how that changes the game to have a deaf child that they expected to be hearing. I wanted to find a school that could accommodate her but I didn’t know anything about deaf kids and I just came to this school because it was close to my house. The principal came out like, oh my god we have a hearing program here. We have an early intervention program and so we do try to set that up as early as possible because the most critical years of language development are zero to three.…
