Many thanks for your interest in the IMAGE project. Here we notify you of opportunities to participate in our design & creation activities:
1. Take part in our one-to-one Participatory Design Workshops for autistic students and graduates (virtual)
Hello, my name is Rachael Maun and I am a 2nd year PhD student and researcher for the IMAGE project and would love your help!
From December 2020 I will run a series of one-to-one online workshops to design the IMAGE employability toolkit. The toolkit will help future graduates prepare for employment whilst still at university, and it will contain useful tips and resources.
In my PhD I investigate participatory design methods, so I’m particularly interested how these type of workshops can best be structured and run to be most beneficial to autistic people. During the workshop, I would like to learn about the experiences of autistic students around preparing for and finding employment, and together we will design tools that can help during this journey.
You will get a choice of possible dates and can indicate your availability. I will then get in touch with further information.
All workshops will be run on a one-to-one basis. Workshop participation is completely voluntary. All information we collect will be anonymised and we have gained ethical approval for this research.
If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you more details. You can also contact my supervisor and the lead of the IMAGE project Dr. Marc Fabri at email@example.com
We hope that you would like to be involved.
