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.

    During the past decade, federal education and civil rights accessibility statutes related to Ed Tech materials and delivery systems have increasingly converged. References to Section 508, WCAG2 AA, Universal Design, and Universal Design for Learning are now commonplace in both federal and state procurement policies. Accessibility support is best designed in rather than added on, and while it exists as a compliance challenge, it can also accelerate product differentiation: personalization is based on learner variability, including students with disabilities, ELLs, and those in poverty. This session offers guidance and resources from the National Center on Accessible Educational Materials (AEM Center) and its work with SETDA to facilitate product designs that, while essential for some students, expand opportunities for all.
