Blind Bargains

New Blog from Louisiana Tech University


The Professional Development and Research Institute at Louisiana Tech University has started a blog that they hope will be a useful resource for anyone who works with blind children and adults. These are some of the topics that the blog will cover.

  • The latest research on blindness to help you to better answer questions
    from educators and the general public, which will improve the opportunities
    available for blind students and professionals;

  • Methods for teaching braille and cane travel that will increase the
    effectiveness of instruction, allowing blind people to lead active, truly
    independent lives;

  • Philosophy-rich speeches and articles leading the public to see blind
    people as equal participants in their training, education and employment;

  • Perspectives from current students and alumni about why they find it
    rewarding to teach blind students and adults, encouraging others to join the
    growing profession; and

  • Interviews with experienced professionals, which will create nationwide
    networking opportunities for teachers of the blind that will foster
    collaboration on the latest, research-based instructional methods.

On the website, there are ways to subscribe either via RSS or email.
