Training Material for Students with Visual Impairments
A study course is very different from the everyday school life. Students with visual impairment must therefore acquire new, special skills, that will help them to face a scientific-technical study course. Often, these skills must also be learned during the study course, in such case as students experience a progressive visual loss that makes it necessary for them to change to work techniques specific to visually impaired people in a gradual way.
The SZS provides therefore a training programme that is continuously developed. The contents of the trainings encompass for instance: dealing with complex mathematical formulae, access to chemistry, introduction to specific study-relevant tools and dealing with tactile graphical material.
The Project is financed by quality assurance funds. These funds should Support sustainability of research and teaching.
