Developing Multi-sensory Strategies For Engagement

  • ISL Interpreted
  • Speech to Text

Venue: Online

Date: Wednesday 13 October
Time: 2pm–5:30pm

Hannah Goodwin, Independent Accessibility Specialist, Rebecca McGinnis, Senior Managing Educator for Accessibility at The Metropolitan Museum of Art (The Met) and Annie Leist, Associate Educator, Community & Access Programs at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) provided a Workshop dedicated to developing multi-sensory strategies to engage all audiences.

Through interactive experiences, discussion, and group activities, registrants gained an understanding of the unique characteristics of different senses and modalities. They also received guidance on how and when to activate these to optimise learning, engagement, and enjoyment for various audiences. Registrants were equipped with tools and strategies to implement multi-sensory elements in galleries, the classroom, and online that benefit all learners and create more accessible and inclusive experiences. In order to maximise on registrants time, there was a small amount of pre-session work to do ahead of the session.

This Workshop took place on Wednesday 13 October 2021 from 2-5:30pm IST, registration was €25 per person.

This event had live Speech to Text (CART) provided by MyClearText  and took place in Zoom.

Irish, American, and British Sign Language interpretation was available on request at the time of booking.

Irish Sign Language (ISL) is the sign language used in the republic of Ireland. The language makes use of space and involves movement of hands, body, face and head. A sign language interpreter interprets what a person says or signs simultaneously, or immediately afterwards.

Speech to Text is a process of converting speech into text.
