About Laura Hutton
My role in Jisc is to support UK Universities and Colleges with the implementation of ‘accessibility’ and complying with the UK Public Sector Web regulations. I provide guidance to organisations on increasing the adoption of accessibility within the working practice of their staff and students. I also advise on using assistive technology and inclusive learning and teaching practices.
I am enthusiastic about sparking conversations, getting people to share with each other and supporting each other to make digital learning and teaching more inclusive. I am here to support and develop communities of practice for those who are interested in progressing accessibility and inclusion.
Accessibility touches everything we do. It is vitality important that within education, as our lives become ever more ‘digital’, we use technology where appropriate to enhance the lives of staff and students, making the learner journey open and accessible for all.
