What was most impressive, from this technologist's perspective, was Krystine's "orchestration" of the multimedia team's contribution - her plan was well thought out, it was clearly communicated, and she carefully yet firmly critiqued our work until she achieved the sought after product.

Alleviating the stress of presentations through the use of technology

“I really wanted my committee to get the content of my talk and not have to focus so much on my speech that they did not really get a chance to hear what I saying. By recording the oral presentation portion of the proposal defense I think this was achieved”.

Krystine Donato

M.A. Candidate


Alleviating the stress of presentations through the use of technology

“My fortunate participation in this particular accommodation ‘support’ of an oral defense has informed my understanding of education as liberatory practice.

Accommodation is not about doing it ‘my’ way or ‘your’ way, or equity per se -- it is about people having sufficient liberty to demonstrate what they know and to be who they are”. Lianne Fisher
