I have just read a document related to several colleges and universities in
Scotland and could not resist chuckling over the various titles provided by
the practitioners - they were not AT specific but related to e-learning. A
bit bleak when it comes to information about the individual's understanding
of how to make accessible documents and change basic elements in Windows.

Best wishes E.A.

Subject: [Athen] Reminder Call For Papers: ATHEN E-Journal Issue #4

Greetings, All. As we all waddle back to work after Thanksgiving and many
of us prepare for the end-of-term avalanches, this is to remind you that
ATHEN is now accepting paper submissions for issue number four of the ATHEN
E-Journal. Based on responses to a query posted to the list sometime back,
the topic for this issue is "Who Are We and What Do We Do?" When I asked
awhile back what people wanted to read and write about, the overwhelming
response was that people wanted to know what their colleagues were called at
their various institutions, what their job descriptions said that they did,
what they _really_ did, how their positions were structured, who they
reported to (Disability Services, Information Technology, someone else?),
the skills that they were expected to have -- in short, details about our
various positions. The survey by Terry Thompson and colleagues has been
investigating this question as well, so we hope that this issue of the
E-Journal will contribute to that base of knowledge and benefit us all.

If you would like to submit a paper, please ensure that it reaches me
(thaven at hawaii.edu) no later than December 21, 2007. Please include your
name, title, institution, and other relevant information; contact me
off-list (thaven at hawaii.edu) with questions or concerns.

Thanks, and wishing you peace at this hectic time of year,
