Talk 2: A/Prof Judith McKenzie is head of the division of disability studies at UCT. As convenor of a postgraduate diploma in disability studies, which moved from a block release course to blended learning, she became aware of the power of online learning technologies. Having worked in the field of inclusive education for over 20 years she saw an opportunity to reach teachers and parents of children with disabilities in low and middle income countries through the development of a MOOC through CILT at UCT. This has subsequently had an impact on her research and teaching opening up a whole range of teaching and learning possibilities.
