Description

Colleges and universities are improving the educational opportunities of a growing population of students with disabilities by considering the accessibility of the learning materials and technologies used in their programs. The reality of lawsuits is one contributing factor, particularly for institutions that are implementing actions outlined in settlement agreements. So, what can be learned from settings where digital accessibility has become a priority rather than an afterthought? In this session, you’ll be introduced to the concept of an institution-wide approach to ensuring that all students are provided with course materials and technologies they can use for positive learning outcomes.
