You’re listening to a podcast from Media Access Australia. Inclusion through technology.
I’m speaking with Dr Scott Hollier, Media Access Australia’s Specials Advisor, Digital Accessibility, and senior lecturer of the Professional Certificate in Web Accessibility, the PCWA. This university-accredited web and digital access course has been operating since 2011, and over 500 people have graduated with an internationally recognised qualification. What’s more, the PCWA was officially praised for educational achievement in the highly respected Knowbility 2017 Heroes of Accessibility Honours List. First up Scott, you must have been pretty chuffed on hearing the news?
Dr Scott Hollier:
It’s always great news to get acknowledgement for what has been a great journey with the course, and it’s particularly great for our alumni because what it really does demonstrate is that the course is of high quality and it’s really meeting the need for bringing accessibility into work practices. So we’re all delighted, it’s a real team effort to progress the course and work towards it, and while you’d never seek these things, it’s always really nice when you’re acknowledged for it.
