Seminars@Hadley are the best! The technology seminars are especially relevant; the information I acquired helped me learn about my iPhone.

Seminars@Hadley presents

Remaining Literate in the Age of UEB

Date: Thursday, June 4
Time: 10:00 AM CDT 15:00 GMT


The buzz is in the air over UEB. It is not just the awakening of spring into summer, but all the talk of UEB. How about a discussion of braille then and now? If you’ve learned or read braille for a year or 50 (or more) years, will you still be able to read it using UEB?

Join Seminars@Hadley as instructors Danette Johnson and Sharon Howerton, as well as some Hadley students, discuss Unified English Braille (UEB), why it was adopted, some of its changes and why braille, no matter when and how much you have learned or are in the process of learning, continues to be a valuable to your literacy.

This 60-minute seminar will be moderated by instructor Kim Walker. Time will be allotted for questions and answers.
