R2D2 Center Visiting Scholars Program
R2D2 offers a wide variety of unique projects and experiences related to universal design, assistive/adaptive technologies, and community accessibility that will challenge and enhance the skillsets of visiting scholars and those wishing to complete a capstone project. R2D2’s focus on universal design, assistive technology, and community accessibility have provided past scholars with the opportunity to engage in projects and tasks such as…
- Working with current center data to create a research project implemented with schools close to home
- Engaging in teaching experiences
- Creating grant proposals that went on to receive funding (I-Corps & IMPACT, HESTIA, MyAccessCoach, etc.)
- Conducting app development for accessibility apps (AccessRatings for Buildings)
- Presenting at state and national conferences (such as through the Wisconsin Occupational Therapy Association, and the AOTA Education Summit)
- Creating critical center-based taxonomies
- Participating in the IMPACT program
- And more!
Past visiting scholars have been involved in following ways:
- OTD capstone projects
- PhD dissertation scholars
- MSOT third fieldwork rotations
