  • How do you apply your Teruko Ikeda training in your life and work?

    The things I learned from the training have been one of the foundations for the skills and knowledge I use in my work in accessibility. Also, the social and communication skills I developed from the training have helped me in properly conducting accessibility talks and seminars.

  • Most memorable experience during the Teruko Ikeda ICT Training

    learning lots of things from David Hathaway, visiting the shrines and temples in Saitama, sampling authentic Japanese food, exploring the Batu Caves in Malaysia
