Blind Woodworking

A blind student and instructor use a router

In partnership with blind woodworkers, I created an open, online resource for educators who want to make their classrooms more inclusive. The bulk of the teaching content is formed around 10 Teaching Principles that instructors can keep in mind while planning their lessons. The teaching principles will be familiar to many instructors, but they have unique deployments when it comes to serving blind and visually impaired students.

The webpage is a living resource that invites comments and the addition of helpful sources. In addition to the original research, I have linked to manuals written by blind woodworkers, for blind woodworkers, on tool use.

A link to my original academic research paper that supported and led to the development of this online resource can be found at this link [link opens in a new tab:http://openresearch.ocadu.ca/id/eprint/2498/
