August 13, 2020 — As we become increasingly reliant on digital platforms for education and learning, the need arises for educational assistive technology and professionals who are well-versed in their uses. In response to the changing climate, the University of Dundee in Scotland has created a Master of Science in Educational Assistive Technology program. The program will be hosted in their School of Science and Engineering and aims to ensure that students with learning disabilities are able to fully engage in higher learning via the appropriate tools. However, this feat is not possible without the necessary professionals in place. Graduating professionals will be able to support students who require assistive technology in the university space. The program requires that interested applicants have the following criteria: Bachelor’s degree in computing, education, or a therapeutic subject and Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) member status or equivalent [Source: SNS Web via The Statesman].
