Following Teller’s untimely death on July 1 this year, a group of former PPAT and AT students including his graduate student William Li, SM ‘12, who TA’d the inaugural PPAT offering and Grace Teo, HST PhD ‘14 student and member of the MIT Assistive Technology Club, and a core group of students who took the class in 2013 have formed a team to continue Teller’s legacy through both PPAT and its outgrowth the ATHack, a one-day workshop launched in spring 2014. Li and Teo, who will co-instruct the class and three other members of the team will work with Professor Rob Miller, MIT MacVicar Faculty Fellow and EECS co-education officer.”
