What is GATHER?

This free 3 day online event, that gathers our Assistive Technology (AT) Community in Further and Higher Education, is a space to meet online, share ideas and insights about the multifaceted topic of AT and how it is part of student success.

This is a place where staff from further and higher education can come together about Assistive technology and share experiences, insight and tips about AT. Over the three days on May 31st , June 1st and June 2nd, we will have presentations, demonstrations and discussions that will explore:  

  • How AT helps us in different ways to succeed and overcomes barriers,  

  • How we can develop AT awareness and embed AT in the education culture,  

  • Dive into the barriers and successes of AT in education  

  • A well as AT being part of an inclusive approach in the student journey. 

This is an exciting and pivotal time to talk about the power of Assistive Technology as we all have access to AT, in some form now on all our devices, in our day-to-day lives.

Who is this for?

Staff in Further and Higher Education are all welcome. Whatever your role is in education, AT can have a place for you and the work you carry out with and for students.

When is it on?

'GATHER' will happen over 3 days on May 31st , June 1st and June 2nd and  from 9.30am to 12.55pm each day (GMT).
