Teaching and Learning Accessibility
Birds of a Feather
TimeThursday, September 164:30pm - 5:15pm CDT
DescriptionThis BoF is anyone who wants to learn more about accessibility, participate in discussions about raising awareness of the importance of thinking about accessible design, or brainstorm additional ways to integrate accessibility thinking into higher education curriculum. Teach Access is collaboration among education, industry, and disability advocacy organizations to address the critical need to enhance students’ understanding of digital accessibility as they learn to design, develop, and build new technologies. Come discuss how and why JEDI (justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion) efforts should include disability, how teaching and learning about accessibility can powerfully impact your work, and brainstorm new ways to teach accessibility in order to provide more opportunities for students.
