Description

This session continues the discussion around quality and explores ideas on how institutions can use self-assessment to help inform their goals for provisioning accessible course materials and technologies. Highlights of the session include an open dialog and feedback on resources in development as part of  a collaboration between the IMS Accessibility Innovation Leadership Network and the CAST organization to help campuses reflect on their provisions practices and inform new accessibility strategies. Participants will also learn steps institutions are taking to ensure educational materials are accessible to all students.
