I develop and lead on projects focused on accessibility, assistive technology, and inclusive practice in UK further and higher education and research. My experience prior to joining Jisc includes implementing inclusiveness through the application of technology in varied contexts within schools, further, and higher education.
With colleagues, I facilitate Jisc’s lively and supportive accessibility and assistive technology communities. In addition to providing advice and guidance, I deliver direct consultancy and training, including strategically focused visioning workshops which help education providers to create bespoke roadmaps towards accessibility. I represent Jisc on relevant policy engagements, eg at the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Assistive Technology.
I have an MSc in Children and Young People's Mental Health and Psychological Practice. Publications include: Sawrikar, V., & Mote, K. (2022, August 29). Technology acceptance and trust: Overlooked considerations in young people’s use of digital mental health interventions.
