Computing at the University of Dundee is well established in Assistive Technology (AT) and AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication) teaching and research. Computing at Dundee is unique thanks to the user centre, which creates a space for user centre group members to ensure they can have a true impact on teaching, research and implementation of AT. Professor Annalu Waller leads the research group and is the programme lead for both the MSc AAC and the MSc EduAT (Educational Assistive Technology). Rohan Slaughter joined the University in late 2020 to develop and deliver the MSc EduAT, which is welcoming it’s second cohort of students in 2022. The MSc EduAT aims to professionalise the role of the educational assistive technologist by providing a degree that supports practitioners from an educational, technological or therapeutic background to develop the skills, knowledge and understanding required to undertake the assessment, provisioning and ongoing support of assistive technology in education, third sector and social care organisations.
