About the IDRC:

The IDRC is a research and development centre at OCAD University where an international community of open source developers, designers, researchers, advocates and volunteers work together to ensure that emerging information technology and practices are designed inclusively.   The IDRC’s design research encompasses disability and accessibility, economics, social justice and other inclusion-related areas of design. 

Cheryl Li is a designer and user researcher who is passionate about using participatory and inclusive design practices to transform human needs into tangible digital experiences and services. Her practice includes the end-to-end design process, from exploratory user research all the way through to UX/UI design and user testing. 

Alan Harnum is a software developer and design researcher whose interests include accessible technology, multimodal content presentation and inclusive design practice for software development.
